Release Blitz & Reviews by Erin & Jackie: One-Eighty by Teri Kay

Title: One-Eighty Part 1
Series: A Full Circle Duet
Author: Teri Kay
Genre: Contemporary/Single Dad Romance
Release Date: June 15, 2018
Life is a series of events that happen whether we want them to or not. Some bring immense joy, others immense pain. “I want a divorce, this isn't working out any longer” or “On behalf of the military, we thank you for your service. We regret to inform you….has been killed in the line of duty”.....

Change is the only thing we can be absolutely sure of, and for Connor Evans, life was full of the unexpected. An unplanned family right out of high school and a wife who wanted to fulfill her military dreams.
After ten years of selflessness, supporting his wife and being a stay-at-home father, his marriage ends, setting in motion an unstoppable chain of events. When his ex-wife is transferred to Thailand and wants to take the kids, Connor fights for the best things in his life. Now a thirty-one-year-old single father of two daughters, his biggest challenge is yet to come. How does he navigate this one-eighty?
Daniella Kahele is lost in a life that has turned an about-face. Left without a husband, who was killed in the line of duty, she is slowly finding her way while raising a child alone. When her job uproots her from Hawaii to Seattle, she leaves the remnants of her life behind, ready for the challenge of surviving in a whole new world. After some bad dating experiences, Daniella guards herself against any prospect that could hurt her or her son.
Connor and Daniella are both finding their way in this new reality. Can they get through the tough times together and learn to let love prevail?

Teri Kay is a new author to me and I am not sure why. One-Eighty ends in a cliff hanger so be prepared.

Connor Evans married straight out of school to the love of his life. She wanted to serve her country so he became a stay at home dad to their two daughters. Imagine his surprise when she wants a divorce and is transferred to Thailand, planning to take their children with her. Connor fights for and gets custody but his life has changed forever.

Daniella Kahele receives the news you never want to hear, that her husband has been killed in the line of duty. Struggling with her grief she is trying to raise her son. When her job transfer to Seattle, she decides to try and make the best of it. 

When fate intervenes and Connor and Daniella meet, there is attraction. However neither of them want to open themselves up and allow their vulnerabilities to surface, scared of being hurt. What happens when their feelings become to intense to ignore?

Will Connor and Daniella open themselves up to the chance of love, or will fear and circumstances drive them apart?

One-Eighty is a well written story which will tug at your heartstrings. I am excited to see where Ms. Kay takes their story in the conclusion to the duet.

This is the first book I have read by Teri Kay and it won’t be the last because I really enjoyed this quick easy to read story. This is book one in a duet and it does end on a cliff hanger so if you like books that give you a HEA you may want to wait until the second book comes out, I can’t wait to see what direction book two takes us. 
Conner is coming to terms with his wife asking for not only asking for a divorce but moving to Thailand with her lover and after 10 years of being the supportive stay at home husband he now finds himself at the age of 31 a single father. Danielle is also struggling with life her husband was killed in the line of duty and she is slowly coming to terms with raising a child on her own. Can two people trying to find their way in life find strength and love in each other .........
This is a beautifully written story from a very talented author.
