Cowboys Don't Ride Unicorns (Cowboys Don't #2) by Tara Lain

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. 

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 review:
San Francisco meets California country.  Cowboys Don't Ride Unicorns is a sweet tale of an urbanite and a cowboy. San Francisco decorator Laurie Belmont may look like a twink but he prefers to top. Champion bull rider Danny Boone is a handsome hunk of cowboy and Laurie Belmont may just be his unicorn. I really like Laurie. He is who he is and is comfortable in his skin. Danny has paid the price for being gay in a homophobic sport but he too is comfortable in his skin.
This story runs the gamut of emotions from love to hate and everything in between. It is a well rounded story that will keep you entranced from the first page till the last.
