Book Review: Sit…Stay…Beg by Roxanne St. Claire


Garrett Kilcannon, a former dot com super-success who now devotes his life to rescuing dogs and finding them homes, prefers to keep his secrets buried as deep as a dog hides his bone. So when he learns his father has invited a journalist to Waterford Farm to write and produce an in-depth profile on him, he doesn’t care that she’s a childhood friend or drop dead gorgeous. He has zero tolerance for the media…until he sees a different side when she gets through the walls of a rescue dog who’s refused to eat during her short stay at Waterford. Unwillingly charmed and undeniably attracted, Garrett agrees to the interview that could break down a few of his emotional walls, too.

Garrett might not want to share the story of his colorful former life, but Jessie Curtis has the skills to peel back the layers of this sexy, complicated, caring man. In the process, she not only discovers his secrets, she finds herself falling for a man who touches her heart in a way she never thought possible. Her entire career is riding on this one explosive interview, but can she bear to repay Garrett’s trust by selling his secrets? Or can a woman who gave up on happiness a long time ago learn to believe that all it takes to rescue a lost heart is the love of a good man?

My Thoughts:

Sit Stay Beg had the combination of dogs and people and the mix and mingle of emotion that captures what life is about. It had the perfect amount of secrets and drama to not be too overwhelming. The story of the Kilcannon clan was enough to draw me in. Gramma Finny was a hoot and reminded me of my Grandma Myra.

The characters were compelling and dynamic. The relationships were strong and the bond between Lola and Jessie melted my heart. Of course, I can’t forget Jessie and Garrett and the link they had as teenagers that grew into friendship and then to love. Great storytelling and the author had a sense of humor and genuine goodness that I enjoyed.

I’m looking forward to reading the next book with the Kilcannon clan. The Dogfather and his dynamic children who seem to want to work more than they want to fall in love. So, clever to write a story about siblings with the same drive and motivations. Let’s see where this journey takes us.
