    1. Whether or not karma is punishing me for punching Billy in preschool so I got to snatch his trike, this book happened to me.Having read several of the excellently written Market Garden short stories — an Aleksandr Voinov and L.A. Witt collaboration — I was eager to try out a solo Witt. I realize it’s no secret that Voinov is the one who has the way with words, so it’s really not like I expected Walls of Troy to be up to par with their joint projects. But this far a cry from it? With Witt [...]

    2. Not a lot of people believe that Troy Dalton is actually being harassed. But his father is worried-–and has the power to do something about that worry-–so he has MA1 Iskander Ayhan assigned as a bodyguard for Troy whenever he has to leave the house. Now, being gay isn’t the only reason that Iskander got the job–-he really is good at what he does-–but it was a major factor in the decision since Troy is gay and is receiving threats from homophobic dickheads.Just…not one expected that I [...]

    3. 3.5 stars, rounded up. This book has some themes which have been done rather often in M/M; The bodyguard falling for his younger charge; the dangerous stalker; The constant "We really shouldn't do this but we can't help ourselves" aspect to the relationship. But I enjoyed the writing style and characters enough to get past most of that. Iskander has an appealing POV voice, and Troy, for all that he's young and possibly in danger, is assertive and not a total victim. The military aspects felt nat [...]

    4. 1.5 stars. Unfortunately, Witt has taken one of my favorite tropes and made it very, very dull. Iskander's internal monologue was so tedious, and I felt very little chemistry between the main characters. There could have been a lot of potential in a story like this, but it was undermined by repetitive writing and lackluster character development.If bodyguards are your thing, read Close Protection instead.

    5. This was a FANTASTIC listen with Nick J Russo narrating. Some of the critical reviews mentioned too much repetitious internal dialogue, which I was definitely starting to notice towards the end (yes, yes, I get it, you shouldn't be doing this but you're going to anyway) - but it wasn't enough to take away a star for me, because I enjoyed the hell out of this. There was a bit of a slow burn between defensive, pierced, eyeliner-wearing Troy and rule-following, can't-lie-to-save-his-life, protectiv [...]

    6. Long and drawn out! What really annoyed me about this book was the lies Troy and Iskander told the admiral about who the stalker truly was, seriously didn’t this put Troy in more danger?!?! Also the internal dialogue Iskander had on every other page how he thought getting involved with Troy was a bad idea. Enough was enough, the last couple of chapters I had to jump forward (listened to on audible) because I could take anymore of the games and deceit between these two. 😖.

    7. Here we have the older man/younger man dynamic that I've discovered I really like. I was sucked into the story very quickly and really had trouble putting it down to actually go to sleep (after being awake for about 22 hours, no less).Iskander is a Navy cop who wants to get into doing the personal security details. His first assignment there is to guard the 20 year old son of an Admiral. He thinks it's a bullshit assignment, but Iskander is a professional and he will do his job. And though every [...]

    8. If this book was seriously edited and a lot of the useless inner monologues and dialogues were cut out, it'd be half the size. There was a good 15 - 20% where all they did was have useless conversations, Iskander would just go over things in his mind for the billionth time, and there'd be too much staring. A lot of the conversations were pointless: going over things we already knew, talking about stuff completely irrelevant, etc. The dialogue could have been tightened up so much to actually make [...]

    9. Buddy read with Funny.No secret that I loved men in uniform. When Funny asked me to buddy read this one, I was exited.And I liked it.I love the *cough* 'lust at first sight' between Troy and Iskander, but no sex after 62%. That's good in my opinion, that Iskander really trying hard not to cross the boundaries as a bodyguard for an Admiral's son.But Troy is some kind of persistent kid, and he knew what he want, and he wants Iskander.Iskander's inner monologue is a little bit too much, too much de [...]

    10. Review can be read at It's About The Book4.5 starsIskander Ayhan is assigned to protect Troy Dalton. It rapidly becomes apparent that not only is the office gossip accurate and Troy is misrepresenting the threat to himself to his father and his guard detail, but Troy is completely terrified of something and is suffering from PTSD. Troy only relaxes when at home and in the presence of his huge Rottweiler. Either way, Iskander will protect the kid as the kid firmly believes there is a credible thr [...]

    11. 4 No More Walls Stars!!!Source: eARC for Honest Review Courtesy of Samhain Publishing via NetGalleyLet's start with I am such a huge fan of L.A. Witt and her MM world. In the Walls of Troy, Iskander Ayhan has a job to be protection from one of the Admiral's kid named Troy Dalton. At first he thinks this is a BS assignment with a spoiled kid but once he finds out that it could be due to his sexuality then he changes his tune. The more he gets to know Troy, Iskander realizes that there is so much [...]

    12. A review by The Blogger Girls.I won’t go into the premise here, because the blurb pretty much says it all. I was a little bit on the fence throughout this story, as there were a lot of things I liked, and then a few I didn’t.What I liked: Iskander – hot military dude sent on an assignment he wasn’t too happy about but which he decided to make the best of, pretty much for the sake of his career. He was one of the first people to see through Troy’s walls, i.e. the goth makeup, stand offi [...]

This was a very pleasant surprise.I thought the author did a good job drawing the reader into the book. The plot was so well written and believable.

    15. This was an ok read. But when my favorite character is the dog Talos there is something wrong with the story over all. Iskander should have been an more interesting character but, other than his name that he continually bitches that nobody get right, there isn't much to him. He waffles back and forth about getting involved with Troy a little to much for my liking especially since he knows that it is only going to bring problems. Troy is a major idiot who can't seem to fess up about his ex. Him k [...]

    16. Not many authors could use so many different ideas about their couple in the one book and still end up with a story that I enjoyed. There was the older/younger man coupling, the bodyguard and his charge, plus the military was thrown in as well. With all that, this book could of been a jumbled up mess. Thankfully Walls of Troy turned out to be a story that caught my attention early on, and never stopped. I enjoyed Iksander and Troy. I looked forward to finding out just what the danger was to Troy [...]

    18. L.A. Witt is, very much, a favored author of mine, as she consistently delivers strong stories with good characters, and a wide variety of plot lines. With that said, I am usually driven to military stories, so when I read the description for 'The Walls of Troy', I knew I wanted to read it. Iskander sounded like a strong, tough man, and Troy definitely seemed to need a protector on his side.Iskander has spent fifteen years in the Navy, as a cop, and now has the training for protective detail as [...]

    19. My Review:The first half of this book really captured my attention simply because for the longest time the reader or any of the other characters in the book really know what's going on with Troy. It's obvious that something has him terrified and he definitely has signs of PTSD. But there are also signs that not all is as he says it is. The other bodyguards thinks he's just trying to get attention, but Iskander feels that there's much more going on. He doesn't think that Troy has been completely [...]

    20. The orders that Iskander receives to protect an admiral's son seems more like a possible punishment that a protective detail that he should be happy about. MA1 playing bodyguard is a simple enough assignment though. Sadly it doesn’t take Iskander that long on the job to discover that there is much more going on with Troy than anyone realizes. What many see as a troubled kid, Iskander sees a traumatized young man. Iskander goes into this job with everything. He knows there is something going on [...]

    21. I do not understand why I am apparently incapable of not not reading this author. I know better! It's generally more miss than hit and yet the blurbs always suck me in! This one was a struggle. There was such potential but the characters just didn't work for me, nor did the plot. So Troy is being threatened but he won't fess up to who is doing it or why, so his dad calls in favors and gets him a bodyguard, who promptly knows right away that something more is going on than just what Troy will say [...]

    22. I don't know where to start. This book was so nearly great it somehow just missed the mark. It had all the elements - bodyguard, navy, older man/younger man, drama - and yet it just didn't do it for me.I got irritated with the whole 'I'm your bodyguard we shouldn't' conversation which was still going strong at nearly 70% finished. Yes Iskander you are the bodyguard, you shouldn't. So stop being the bodyguard and then you could. Also the son wouldn't tell his dad what was going on for the most fl [...]

    24. It is almost as though this story was written for me or with me in mind.  Not just an age-gap story but these two men, the 20-year-old college student Troy,  with his eye makeup and multiple piercings and the 13-year-older career Navy M.P. had absolutely nothing in common.  Well, maybe nothing in common but, as we come to learn, Troy does have a thing for a strong, older man in uniform.  As for Iskander, Troy was absolutely not his type at all; Troy wasn't an older silver fox, but there was [...]

    25. REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK; OCT 9, 2017Narrator: Nick J RussoAs bodyguard romances go, this one worked for me. It's comfort food for me, meaning, it's predictable, familiar and no unpleasant surprises. I was going to give this 4 stars, removing one star because Iskander is a popular Muslim name (spelled 'Iskandar' usually) rather than 'Turkish' and Ms Witt should have changed her protag's name if his grandparents had converted to Catholicism and Iskander was raised a Catholic. He would have been given [...]

    26. I had read this book originally and really enjoyed it. I love Nick Russo so, of course, I was excited to get the audiobook. With LA Witt you have a really good idea of what you’re going to get because she is such an expert at writing military based to romances. You know that she is going to give you a lot of really hot chemistry. And a really good set up with realistic scenarios. While I am not a big mystery fan, I really appreciated the mystery and excitement in this story. It kept me on the [...]

    27. I do love a good age-gap romance, and this one was good, but not spectacular. It was great the POV was strictly with Iskander. Iskander has been assigned via the navy military to be the bodyguard to Admiral’s college age son, Troy. Now Troy took me a long time to even warm up to, his deep dark secrets as to why he really needed a bodyguard kinda cooled me off. But his dogs were great, especially Talos! Now that was one hell of a guard dog.

    29. The author didn't do much research about military protocols. The dialogue between the MCs and internal dialogue was repetitive, annoying.
