Cowboys Don't Ride Unicorns
(Cowboys Don't Series, #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.

This is the second book in the series by this author but you can easily read it as a stand alone. This is about Danny, a ranch hand and rodeo star who works for Rand and Kai (from book 1) at their ranch. I liked that Danny was a rough and tough cowboy. He is pure alpha maleness but has a fond spot for the pretty boys. He likes his dates a bit on the femme side.
Laurie and his current boyfriend show up at the ranch for a week of horseback riding and sight seeing. His boyfriend is an a$$ and everyone sees it. Danny is drawn to Laurie and his beautiful good looks. Both Danny and Laurie have troubled pasts and neither feels they are worthy of each other.
It's amazing what happens when you happen to find "the one". The one who likes the same things as you. The one who gets your lifestyle. The one who supports you no matter what. The one who makes you feel loved. Yeah...that's Danny and Laurie.
Some stress, some angst, some super hot sm3xy stuff, and some great humor, made this a good read. I look forward to more by this author.
