Despite Gerry's rule against fraternizing with clients, Fernando can't hide his attraction to "Professor Hottie," the young classics instructor who put himself through school working in construction. When Gerry takes an impromptu vacation to save his marriage, he leaves Fernando to babysit the kids and the business.

"5 Nymphs!...Part of the Working Stiffs series and has become one of my favorite stories, thus far...The setting moves primarily between two locations with a quick dash to a third. Each location was perfect ambience for a budding relationship. G. R. Richards describes the settings just enough to set the scene and then makes the couple the focal point once more...If you are wondering which story of the series to start with I would recommend The Brothers Of Hogg's Hollow as one of the top three."--Scandalous Minx, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"4.5 Stars!...This must-read novella offers a delightful mix of comedy, hot sex scenes, and intricate family tensions?has a definite flavor to its writing style--smooth, assured, and slightly exaggerated for comic effect. Its consistent comic touches never quite go over the top and are balanced by complex situations and three-dimensional aspects to Fernando's and Malcolm's personalities that ground the reader in realism and ensure our emotional involvement. Definitely a good read."-- Val Kovalin, Reviews By Jessewave
When he realized Malcolm had turned to face him, Fernando snapped himself out of his heart-wrenching reverie. Abs...abs...God, those abs!
"Do you want me, too?" Malcolm asked. Tossing his hammer spinning in the air, he reached out to grab the handle, but then second-guessed himself and recoiled. It fell to the dusty ground and he leaned down sheepishly to collect it.
Fernando was sure he hadn't heard correctly, but his heart raced all the same. "Huh?"
"Do you want me to fix us some lunch?" he repeated.
Taking off his safety glasses, Fernando chuckled to himself and rubbed the sweat from his forehead with the sleeve of his T-shirt. He fully intended to accept, but instead found himself saying, "I usually just grab a burger and fries or whatever."
Malcolm pressed his hammer end to end. "Well, I'm sure that goes a great length to explaining your iffy tummy. If you eat wretched foods every day, your body is bound to rebel. Let me prepare you a treat for the gustatory senses--do you like taboule?"
"Sure," Fernando replied, though he didn't recognize half the words in that sentence.
"These temperatures are baffling. We used to get snow in May, and now we're into extreme heat alerts. It really is quite alarming."
Fernando watched the subtle motion of Malcolm's abdominal muscles as he spoke. "Yeah."
"If you can spare me, I'd rather like to jump in the shower before I start on lunch," he went on.
With a nod, Fernando gazed across the lower level joists. Gerry and Malcolm had settled on diagonal boards across the expanse, which meant innumerable measurements and cuts. No way he'd be able to concentrate intensely enough to get them right with Professor Hottie's writhing muscles hijacking his attention. "Yeah, I've still got plenty to do out here."
