Legacies were made to be rewritten.

Assassin Hawes Madigan wants to do right—by his family, his organization, his city, and the man he’s falling for, ATF agent Christopher Perri. But Hawes’s rules are being challenged by someone willing to kill for the old ways. To save his soul and his empire, Hawes must make an impossible decision: fight from the outside or bend the knee to win back his throne from within.

Chris is used to being the inside man, the one undercover. Now, he’s on the outside marshaling forces in support of the man and the ring of assassins he was supposed to take down. His mission shifted when he found something that’s been missing for ten long years—a home, with Hawes.

As Hawes and Chris make a dangerous play for control, the lines between allies and traitors blur. Trusting the wrong person could destroy the legacy Hawes envisions for the Madigans. But not trusting anyone, or each other, could mean lights out on their love and lives forever.

The King and King Slayer fight together in this thrilling conclusion to the Fog City Trilogy!

Hawes and Chris are back again for the third and final book in this series. And boy did these two men bring it!! I have to say that Layla Reyne did an incredible job on this series. I was completely blown away with each book and how everything played out. There are so many twists and turns that if you do not start with book one and then go through all of them in order, then you will be completely lost!!

This book is the final book in this series!!! And I will say this, the conclusion will not let you down!! Hawes and Chris are finally on the same page and not questioning each other’s motives. This book starts out where book two ends so Hawes is completely unsure if and who he can trust. Well with the exception of his brother and sister and now Chris. Chris proved himself and Hawes did the same for Chris!!

Now that these two trust that they have the others back, it has come down to the nitty gritty to figure out who has betrayed Hawes and his family and who it is that has it out for Hawes once and for all!! But the answer to that question will definitely rock Hawes’ world along with those closest to him. The betrayal this family has already felt is overwhelming but this next blow will knock everyone off their axis’s.

How will Hawes and his family be able to overcome the betrayal that is in their inner circle? Can they work together to take this person down once and for all? And just how deep does this betrayal in their organization actually go? Will Chris and Hawes be able to continue to be on the same page?

This is definitely a book that I would highly recommend to others to read!! It is one of those series that will keep you on the edge of your seats all the way to the end. I also love that Layla references that their will most likely be a spin off because I definitely want to know how things are going to turn out between Kane and Holt. Those two men have definitely caught my attention and I need to know what is to come for Holt and hopefully Kane as well!!! Amazing read!!

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of A New Empire (Fog City #3) provided by Layla Reyne in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time. I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books. Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.
