Anthony King.

He'd always been such a jerk to Gabriella, doing everything within his power to make her life miserable, from the very day she and her mother moved into his father's house. For years, her stepbrother chased away every guy who displayed even a remote interest in her - he even went as far as to ruin her prom night!

She hated him.

When he'd enlisted in the Marines

"I've wanted you from the first day I met you Gabby," he whispered softly against her lips. "Seeing you and knowing I couldn't have you. Knowing one day I wouldn't be able to stop some asshole from having you. It was too much. But I'm in love with you. The years haven't changed that for me, Gabby, they've only made me want you more."

"I love you, Anthony King. Scars and all."

He was her stepbrother, her hero and now her lover. And she wouldn't have it any other way.

With all those The Stepbrothe

Looking for a hot, quick forbidden romance? This is definitely the book to pick up!

Gabby has been tormented by her stepbrother Anthony since they were in high school. When he ruins her prom, and things may change between them, he heads off and joins the Marines. She doesn’t see or hear from him for 5 years, and when he shows back up its HOT HOT HOT!

Both Anthony and Gabby have wanted each other but since they are step siblings it has been forbidden, especially with the laws Anthony’s fat

Quick, easy read. Step-siblings in their late teens, unrequited love, five year absence and then finally accepting each other as more. There was an interesting angle with Tony having PTSD after coming out of the marines and I wished this had been explored further. There was so much potential for this story.....but it finished at the 77% mark and I felt a little disappointed that there was nothing further! What about their future, their parents, his recovery???? stopped on a HFN.

Sweet read

Not as good as I thought it would be but I enjoyed it.

It's less "smutty" than the usual Terry Towers's stories I've read but I don't mind at all. Because sometimes Terry's books could be too hot and too.. Dirty. Haha. But if I'm in the mood, I'd got for it. Not all the time though.

This book, is your typical stepbrother romance. Kind of predictable and short too, but overall I enjoyed it. Look forward to read more Terry Towers's writing!!!

Her Stepbrother

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Good storyline and enough heat to scorch the pages.

It's a short story. Would make a great novel with some of the hero's war experiences and an epilogue to see how their future played out.

Review for Her Stepbrother, Her Hero by Terry Towers

Her Stepbrother, Her Hero is obviously a stepbrother romance … these books are popping up left and right these days and I find myself unable to resist them. I enjoyed the storyline that was weaved into the erotica. Terry Towers is pretty good at finding the balance between building the story and giving an erotic novella the smut it needs.

Anthony King is every parents dream. Quarterback for his high school football team, popular, handsome, and

Gabriella King had to deal with Anthony King since her mother married his father and instantly she had a new home, a new father and a new big brother. What made it worse was that he was the best at EVERYTHING. He always got what he wanted and she had to live in his shadow with everyone. Anthony didn’t help anything either, he picked on her mercilessly and made her life a living hell. She just couldn’t figure out why. Then on prom night there was the unexpected, and then Anthony was gone. Now fiv ...more

I dislike leaving less than stellar reviews. They're so difficult to write because I know how protective I am about my favorite authors and I don't want to step on toes. This book just wasn't for me, but please take this review for what it is, my opinion. Your's may be very different.

I don't mind shorts or novellas, but I didn't do my due diligence with this book so I was unaware that it wasn't full length. It ends around 77%, so just know that going in.

It contains explicit sex scenes so it is for the mature erotic reader and not anyone under 18. Sure it is a Taboo subject but it is very erotic.
Short but exciting! Gabby's mother married Anthony's Dad which made her feelings for him forbidden. On her prom night she thought her stepbrother ruined her senior prom. She went to confront him but she didn't expect to fall on top of him and him get hard for her. The next morning he was gone. He took off to the Marine's and never reached out to her. 5 y

To short, to rushed, to predictable. Cleche comes to mind. It's just too boring, I read to half way and then returned the book. It felt as if it had to many unfinished gaps in between leaving you as a reader to fill them in (that shouldn't happen) the sexual content is apalling, like an 80s promo rather than realistic. No real character development either,
If your going to release a book and want good reviews then pit time and depth in to it and make it lengthly. Something for people to enjoy an

I have to say that this book was indeed hot! We all know that this subject is super Taboo but I have to say I can't stop myself and need to read them.

The characters in this book have crazy chemistry and I wish the book was longer. I would have liked to read more about Anthony and his time away. I really felt bad for him and when he had his nightmare....that really pulled at my heart strings!

This book ran too smoothly and every part of it fit perfectly!!! So #mustread #hotsexy read ;)

very good short story

I really enjoyed reading this short erotic love story. It was very realistic when Anthony comes home from his tour of five years to make up with his stepsister Gabby whom he has loved forever, as in fallen in love with. Gabby has been angry with him, angonized over why he left so abruptly five years ago but truly loving him too. This is a cute story with some hot sex but short. Loved it.

This story is about two teens who were related only thru thier parents marriage. He ruined her prom night and shortly left for the military. Now he is back. Here is a story of two who were at cross purposes. She thought he hated her. He thought she was too good for him. Now after years away he is back. Can these two star-crossed lovers-to-be be able to collide together? It was a sexual explosion between these two.

Was a good short story

I liked the story. It could of been expanded more and been longer. It felt like it was rushed ending. Left you wanting more but not cliffhanger.
Overview. Tabby was fed up with her new step brother. He was cute, and always trying to screw up her dates and picking on her. After leaving for 5 years in the service he comes home. The feeling have not changed between them, but a few things are different.

I Love A Man In Uniform

Terry Towers has done it again! She has written a story that draws you in from first page to last. You feel the compassion and immense love between the characters as well as the turmoil they are going through dealing with the emotions of a "Taboo" situation. Even that said, the sex scenes are intense and so erotic you should have a "friend" near by to help with the release of sexual need.

Hot and steamy

Anthony has been a pain in Gabby's ass since her mother married his father.
So on the night of her prom, she has had it and let's him know it. And she realizes much more. Then he tell her to leave. The next day, he is enlisted in the marines.
5 years later he comes home and everything has changed. Such a long time time make up for and boy do they.

Very enjoyable

4 stars

I actually really loved this book. If it would have been longer I think I would have enjoyed it more to be honest. The story line went places really well but in other places it was leading one way and dropped off for me. I really was impressed though but like I said I wish there was more to it.

Sexy heck yeah and hot.

Happy Sexy Reading

Terry Towers has written a hot, fun, quick read.

Tony and Gabby's story is hot. They stayed away from each other until Tony gets home a wounded hero and they can't.

Thanks Terry Towers & Good Writing

This was a decent story, but I had a problem with the typos and the inconsistency for example in chapter 4 "It wasn't even prom season..." then on the very next page "Being that it was prom season..."

I didn't realize it was a short novel. Not a fan of those. Not a fan of the writing or plot. Too fast paced, of course. And character development.. PFFT.. too short of a book so what character development, lol.

It's not a bad book... I just do NOT like short stories at all.

not quite sure...

This book was a little cheesy...I'm not quite sure if it was meant to be erotic or more taboo porno. It didn't seem raunchy, but there wasn't much of a story line and the relationship between Anthony and Gabby progressed quickly.

Too short! It at least needed an epilogue. What happened when their father found out? What became of his ptsd? So many questions were not answered

A quick read with a serious side.

I liked the story however it was lacking with details. Like how are they hiding it? What about the parents? Future? I was expecting a little more and didn't get it.

A decent enough short story with good chemistry between Anthony and Gabby but I felt that it ended too abruptly, there was definitely more in the story in my opinion.
