Cowboy's Don't Ride Unicorns by Tara Lain 4*
BLURB:Cowboy Danny Boone—a name he made up one drunken night and has regretted ever since—harbours 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: I was gifted with a copy for reviewing. What can I say that won't sound like fan gushing (I own almost every book Tara has written) but still tells you how great this story was? Well I guess I'll start with how much I learnt about Rodeos and bull riding from reading this book. Then I can go one to tell you how wonderful the Characters were and how great it was to have the family from Cowboy's Don't Come Out (I love young Aliki to bits) appear in this book too. But most of all I can tell you that Tara delivered another touching, sensual, loving romance that tugged at the heartstrings and left you feeling a warm glow of happiness at the end. If you haven't read this one yet, and have enjoyed even one of Tara's previous books, you won't go wrong picking this one up and spending a little time with Laurie and Danny and the wonderful world they live in.
