Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbors a big past and yearns for a small future. A short, bright career as a champion bull rider almost ended in his death when his homophobic father discovered Danny was gay. Now Danny longs for a plot of land he can build a ranch house on and enough money to make up for some of the education he missed.Cowboys Don't Ride Unicorns by Tara Lain
Danny also hides a preference for beautiful femmes who like to top—a combo rarer than a unicorn. Then onto the guest ranch where Danny works drives San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont, a young man so gorgeous he makes horses gasp, and so ballsy he almost kills Danny’s attacker.
Laurie’s trying to find his way out from under the thumb of a domineering mother, helpless father, and rich, privileged boyfriend.
But no matter the attraction, their lives are worlds apart, and cowboys don’t ride unicorns.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I liked this one better than the previous book with Rand and Kai.
Danny and Laurie were definitely made for each other.
Lawrence a.k.a Laurie is a flamboyant and beautiful man, with a great sense of fashion, rich boyfriend and a city guy.
Not compatible with Danny the bull rider at all.
But don't ever under estimate Laurie. He's probably looked like a girl, but he can make a bull rider fall on his feet. Literally! And he can fight man! What a guy!
I liked the chemistry between Danny and Laurie from the start, even some point, I doubted his fidelity to his rich lawyer boyfriend. But I knew something's coming so...I waited.
And yeah, as predictable the case with the boyfriend is, I think Laurie made a point why he's 'not comfortable with his boyfriend.
Not everybody liked it when your whole life you have to do things for everybody and makes everybody happy and being a trophy boyfriend.
At some point, Laurie had to make a decision how would he live his life the way he wanted.
And Danny is in the picture.
Enjoy the ride!
