Too Much Plot for Length of Story
Bailey is the youngest of the Nelson brothers and perhaps a bit of a player. But when an Australian cowgirl comes to help at Kayden and Kirra’s horse rescue center, he starts to reconsider his approach to romance. This is the fourth book that I’ve read in the Nelson brothers series. I quite enjoyed the first and third ones, but I felt like the second book and this one were too short for the stories that they had to tell. This book feels like it’s barely longer than a long short story, yet the story arc seems to require a longer novella to be fully realized. As such, the love story didn’t really have time to fully develop. There wasn’t time to really develop any other sort of external conflict either. I enjoyed the characters of Bailey and Marty, the heroine, but there just wasn’t enough to this story.
