HaBO: Searching for the Paella Man

Recommended Posts

This HaBO comes from Jill who wants to find this contemporary romance:

This is a long shot because I remember so little and it’s not terribly searchable with what I have, but any help is appreciated from the SBTB community!

What I remember about this contemporary, hetero romance novel is this:

– the hero speaks another language fluently, I’m pretty sure it’s Spanish

– both hero and heroine are a bit commitment phobic and view this as strictly a fling/something without labels

– the turning point of their relationship is when they go to a restaurant, eat paella, drink wine and dance. The heroine is impressed by the hero’s ability to speak Spanish(?) to the owner of the restaurant, who knows him as a regular.

– after the paella, they have sex in a walled garden/back patio area of the restaurant against a wall

– when they’re boning, the heroine asks the hero to speak the other language to her, which he does, and the author does not provide a translation. He also doesn’t explain the meaning after. The Google translation is roughly about her belonging to him.

– the novel is NOT set in Spain, I’m pretty sure it’s set in America somewhere.

– It’s possible the guy’s name is Simon.

Typing this out I feel bonkers but I swear it happened! Please help!

Sound familiar to anyone?
