Book 3 in the series, this story revolves around Cody Gentry, a "top notch cutting horse trainer", until a freak accident leaves him blind. His dad hires a guide dog trainer, Lyssa McElhannon, to come out to the ranch and help his son. Lyssa comes, but doesn't realize that Cody doesn't want any help. It is up to Lyssa and Otis, the dog, to get Cody to want to make a life for himself and do most of all the things he used to do. The tension between Lyssa and Cody turns into alot more by the end of the book!

A ~ 190 page romance book of a cowboy and cutting horse champion that becomes blind from a chemical drain cleaner accident; and the young woman and the guide dog she has trained show up at the ranch under the misapprehension that he accepts and knows about the arrangements his father has made. A very good well-written romance story with a few minor explicatives and some intense kissing scenes. Sass, angst, drama, rivalry, and romance. Also the last story in the free Wounded Heroes collection.

The third book in the Texas Hearts series, is my favorite. It is very easy to relate to and fall in love with the characters in this book. Lyssa, is a guide dog trainer and Cody Gentry needs a guide dog, but doesn't really want one. After being in a chemical accident, Cody is blind, and very depressed. His life is the ranch, cattle and horses, and now he feels like all of that is gone. Lyssa, hired by his father, really has her work cut out for her, because Cody doesn't want any part of it. In the beginning, he takes his anger and frustrations out on Lyssa, and she quickly realizes that she has to be tough on him, to pull him out of his depression, without pitying him. Once he finds out that Lyssa, was blind for a while, he starts to change the way he feels about her, and decides to give her and the dog a chance. He also opens her eyes to the fact that she may not be living her life to the fullest. I recommend this book to anybody who likes a good romance, a stubborn but sexy cowboy, and a woman, full of courage.

Mrs. Mondello writes wonderful, heart felt romances and The More I see is diffidently one of them. The characters that she writes you can easily relate too and fall in love with. In The More I See Cody Gentry in a stubborn cowboy. Used to doing things on his own, he was thrown off course when a chemical accident left him blind. His father went behind his back and hired Lyssa McElhannon, a guide dog trainer, to come in and help train Cody and his new guide dog. Just what Cody needs, to seem helpless in front of a dog and a woman. Men. Lyssa makes it her mission to show Cody that just because you are blind doesn't mean your life has stopped. She was once blind herself and uses her past experience as a chance to show Cody what he is missing. Working so close together things are bound to heat up and they do. Cody and Lyssa get close. Cody feels that Lyssa could be the one but Lyssa has other plans. She has commented herself to helping the blind. Cody another chance at surgery. While he is recuperating Lyssa leaves. So Cody does what any man in love is suppose to do, chase after her and declare your love for her. I have just started reading cowboy romances and Lisa writes a good modern take on that romance genre. Cody and Lyssa and both great characters. You root for them till the end. You would think that the whole plot would be Lyssa showing Cody how good life could be even if he can't see. You also see that Cody is showing her how good life could be even though she can see. She spent so much of her life blind that when she could finally see, she still didn't really see. I think it took both of them to show each other how good each side of the world could be. I wish that maybe the book was a little longer and maybe there was more detail in Lyssa's life. It seems to be that Cody's story was all consuming when Lyssa's story was being told too. It is a light hearted book, not heavy on the drama. I recommend this book. The series as a whole is a sweet read and heart warming.

Could not put it down

My Review: I adored this book. Every single little thing about it. You get to see glimpses of Cody in Beau's book (Book #1 in this series) and I wasn't sure I was going to like him, but I fell in love with him. In the process of saving a young ranch hand from getting burned in a chemical spill, Cody ends up blinded by those chemicals. Cody is a competitive cutting horse rider, something he DEFINITELY has to have his eyes for. He also trains the horses and riders for cutting. This is a working guy. He's up in the saddle and out on the ranch every day all day. But when he loses his sight he loses all of that and doesn't know how to deal with it. Lyssa knows about blindness. She lost her sight as a young child and through medical advancements was able to get it back after being blind for 20 years. Now she devotes herself to helping others who find themselves blind by training working dogs and blind people how to trust them. When Cody's father comes to the school for help for Cody, he gives them an offer they can't refuse...a huge chunk of money in return for a month at the ranch teaching Cody and his new dog how to adapt. The issue though is that Cody doesn't want to learn. He's already given up. Did I mention I loved this book??? Every little move in this book was perfect. I loved how Lyssa and Cody slowly slide into their friendship and then more. Cody doesn't want her there. He's scared of failing and accepting that this is his life now. Lyssa sees why he is striking out at her, but she doesn't give an inch. She tells him like it is even when the truth hurts. I loved the views of ranch life in this book. I've always been fascinated by cutting so that made this book particularily fascinating. This has just been a great series and I've loved reading it. I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

Cody Gentry lost his sight eight months ago and stopped living. The only thing he seemed to focus on was when he could have his next surgery and he assumed it would give his sight back...end of story. He didn't expect a whirlwind to enter his life and turn it all about but he soon learned to enjoy it. Lyssa had been blind for twenty years before a miracle operation so she could teach with that experience behind her. And she knew the important work the guide dogs did. She put her heart and soul into her work, but was she truly living? When Lyssa is sent to Cody with Otis the guide dog it seems that both of their hearts got a shot of adrenaline to get them living life to it's fullest. Lisa brings her characters to life. You can sense a wee bit what it must be like to know your home so well and yet without your sight how easy it can be to get turned around and confused. To feel the wind whip past your face as the horse gallops through the field. The joy of going from darkness to light. And the fear that the love you feel may not be returned. Another great addition to the Texas Hearts series and I look forward to reading the next two books in this series. Gypsy Hearts, Brock Gentry's story is in book 4 of the series is in hardcover and can be found online. Book 5: Leaving Liberty is the Jackson Gentry's story. We have not heard much about this brother as of yet, only that he is in law enforcement.

I liked this book, but was dissapointed with her easy use of cursing. I really enjoyed the first couple books going light on that. Hell and damn do not make or break a book, better left out. I do appreciate it being cleaner than many other romances.
