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.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review and book tour. ( )

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! ( )

As a top-notch cutting horse trainer, Cody Gentry was riding high until he lost his eyesight after a freak chemical accident.Unable to see the hand in front of his face,never mind the horse or cattle he trained, he knows his life is over and slips deep into depression.His whole future hinges on the success of an eye surgery that could give him his old life back.

When guide dog trainer, Lyssa McElhannon, arrives on his ranch like Florence Nightingale coming to save him, he wants no part of her or her guide dog. But something about Lyssa's musical laugh coupled with her tenacity digs under his skin and won't let go. Having been blind most of her life, Lyssa understands the paralyzing fear Cody feels after losing his vision.But she refuses to let the stubborn cowboy waste his life away sitting in a chair when she knows firsthand that a good guide dog can change his world. She just needs one month to prove it to him.

Falling in love with Cody was not part of Lyssa's plan, nor was having him openher eyes to see that there was a whole lot of living she'd been missing out on.
