Despite the rumors about Port Lewis, Michael Gates doesn’t expect the house he rents with his sister on Foxglove Lane to be haunted. An eerie meeting with Victor Lewellyn, the resident witch-turned-demon who is bound to the property by dark magic, changes his mind.
Michael isn’t looking to start a relationship with anyone, let alone someone like Victor, but the intense attraction between them can’t be ignored. As he dives into the world of magical drug rings, demons, witches, and necromancers, Michael also grapples with the complicated past he left behind in Arizona.
A relationship might not be what he wants, but it sparks something in him he didn’t realize he needs—the chance to heal.

Unbroken follows Michael Gates as he settles into his new life at Port Lewis. Trying to escape his past in Arizona, he moves to this small, rainy town with his sister. It doesn't take him long to find out that the house he's recently rented is haunted by an actual demon, who turns out to be a pastry chef with a soft spot for sweetness.
I love Unbroken. A lot. This book is as lighthearted as it is heavy. It's full of funny moments but isn't lacking touching and tender ones either. I've spent two weeks examining my feeling for the book, and it hasn't changed a bit since I finished reading it. Safe to say, Unbroken has a place on my favorite shelf and in my heart now.
Unbroken is an excellent addition to the Port Lewis Witches universe, although it can be read as a standalone. If you like Hades/Persephone retelling, demonfucker romance, “oh my god they were roommates” situation and healing theme, you definitely would want to give this book a chance.
