I really liked the book and Lyssa and Cody were great but there was just something missing. Unlike the last book about Mitch and Sara this one made very little if no connection to the first two books. I would have liked to know more about Beau and Mandy and their baby (which was not mentioned but once and no sex was given) or Sara, Mitch, and Johnathon. It does seem a little weird that Cody's nephew or niece is never around aren't babies supposed to cheer people up. Other than no linking connect ...more

This was the third book in the Texas Hearts boxed set and like the other two this was also a wonderful story. These stories are not real long about 115 pages a piece. This one talks about Beau's brother, Cody, who has lost his eyesight due to a accident on the ranch. He meets Alyssa who was sent by his dad to train him with his seeing eye dog. Cody wants nothing to do with this and there in lies the problem. He is however drawn to Alyssa. This is another great read

One of the Gentry brothers, Cody, met Beau in the first story, but you will see Beau in this one quite a bit. Cody lost his eye sight from a moisture of drain cleansers, a greenhouse on the ranch mixed a lot a lot of different cleansers together but Cody save the kid but got the burns and the damage instead. His dad Mike finds a program for home trainers and dogs, and when Lyrssa and her dog Otis came out to the ranch she finds a very moody Cody sitting by the pool, depressed, he's been like thi ...more

The book synopsis says the heroine has been blind most of her life...but, folks, she isn't actually Would it have been too much to ask for that to have been made clear? Was intrigued with the concept of a strong, "blind" heroine helping a recently blind hero learn to cope, until most likely his surgery restores his vision. So it turns out I bought a book that isn't going to be what I thought it was. Sure she can relate but it just wasn't the same.

Unfortunately, I found this book re

I bought this as a bundle (all three Texas Hearts stories). Sometimes they were too sweet. I don't know if that makes any sense, but if it's your cup of tea, go for it.

I couldn't imagine the characters, didn't see them fully and couldn't understand why they would act in certain ways. I understand that either plot moves the characters, or characters move the plot, and in this case (which I found to be the former), it became a bit of a drag. I don't know, I guess I was expecting something difficul

The More I See is now in ebook.

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

The More I See (Book 3 Texas Hearts) by Lisa Mondello

I really enjoyed reading The More I See (Texas Heart series) this book did not disappoint me at all and I found the plots are all a bit different so you never feel like your reading the exact same story. I am now a big fan of Lisa’s writing and will continue to follow this series. I have already taken a look at her other books to see what else I need to read. Lisa Mondello writes good romance novels, you see the characters develop, friendships
Avid Reader Amy's Reviews
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 helpl ...more

This is my favorite book of the series. I think that, besides the great characters and the romance between Lyssa and Cody, the story itself is exceptional.

I don't think it's a sad story. I feel like it's more a story of triumph, of growth. And there's also this idea that you can appreciate things better if one your senses or your brain doesn't get in the way. I mean, really, you usually read about drop-dead gorgeous heroines (which is not bad, mind you), but for me it's always refreshing to read

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 t ...more

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

I think of the three stories in this series this is my favorite. Cody Gentry (brother to Beau from the first two books in the series) finds himself without his sight after a chemical accident. In his line of work, he feels pretty useless without it. Enter Lyssa McElhannon, guide dog trainer. I found it comical that Cody could never remember her last name, although he was pretty consistent in what he called her. Through the course of events, Lyssa is able to help Cody find himself and to be able ...more

Lyssa was blinded as a child and only recently (the past few years) regained her eyesight. She is a "seeing eye dog trainer" and is very good at her job. When she herself was being trained or taught, she fell in love with her teacher; now the tables are turned and she is the teacher. Her latest student is Cody Gentry, a surly depressed man who recently lost his eyesight during an accident. He is banking all his hopes on the positive results of a cornea replacement surgery. Until then, his father ...more

Hate that it didn't talk anything about the couples from 1&2 and this relationship was lackluster. It was missing the romance and fun. The one thing I could relate to though for sure was her self esteem issues.

My Thoughts:
I fell in love with Lisa Mondello's characters in book one of this series and was thrilled to have the opportunity to continue reading her books. Each book has different main characters, but we are given glimpses of everyone which is fun.
This book was as good as the first two. I was intrigued from start and was fully invested before I knew it. The struggle that Cody is going through is heart breaking and Lyssa's determination is uplifting. Lisa Mondello takes the reader on a wild ri

Lyssa and Cody a love story at it's best. Beauty is really in the eye of the beholder and sculpting is a brilliant way when you are without sight. I cried at the "dear john" letter because she bared her soul and all he wished for was gone. I agree if the doctor would have allowed his request she never would have left. The question is though, what woul d she do about her job. I am with Cody her last name is even difficult for me and Gentry is much better on the tongue. Great book Lisa, I am happy ...more

This was the best of the three books. Loved Loved Loved the story of this book. Wish it would have been longer. I hope in the next book of the series though that we get to find out more about the people of the past 3 books. This book did not really hit on what was happening with the characters of the previous book (except for Beau at a few moments) Best to read the other 2 books first but can be a stand alone book as well.

I liked this final book of the Wounded Heroes boxed set. Cody has lost his eyesight and Lys is the dog handler sent to the ranch to teach him how to work with a seeing eye dog. I didn't really feel Cody's frustration with the blindness and wish that would have been developed more. I also didn't feel that much anger with the intrusion of Lys and Otis the dog. Still it was a nice story and although I liked the ending - it felt rushed.
