Release Blitz -- Ten Thousand Lies

“We were the nightmares of nightmares…” 

On the surface, Ricki Conklin is just an average bloke, a brilliant tattooist with his own shop. 
Below the surface, he’s a vigilante revenge-seeker, atoning for a past he fears will never set him free. 

Jaime is his everything, his foul-mouthed Dollface. 
Covered in ink from collarbone to feet, she’s a wild child after his heart. 
Set adrift, losing faith in herself and humanity, she’s broken down not by abuse, but by neglect. For years, she exists only so she can finally come home. 

This is their story. 


Ten Thousand Lies 

Book 1 is about a different couple in the series. Here are the links:

Ten Thousand Words 


I always love reading Jean's books. She has a fresh, intelligent spin on her words that keeps my mind intrigued and my heart invested. This book was no different.

In this story we really get to know Jaime and Ricki. I don't know how they are in real life, but this fictional rendition of them is definitely swoon-worthy. Despite the circumstances surrounding them and the darkness they face, the beacon of light within them makes the rest bearable.

I can't give more than that, except this: Jean has written another enticing world where not everything is black and white. It's gritty, bloody, and in a lot of ways...raw. Her characters are complicated and her story lines complex in the layers they present. I want to live in her world, and each time I open the cover to her books, I get that opportunity.

Kelli Jean 
Born and raised in Miami, Kelli Jean traded the tropical heat for the arctic. Now she deals with twenty-four hour daylight in the summer, zero sunlight in the winter, and believes the Northern Lights make up for the mind-boggling amount of ice and snow she has to put up with for seven months out of the year. 
She's surrounded by mountains and ocean and sheep, and claims her bizarre sense of humor 
is what keeps her sane.

The insane don't know they're insane.

Kelli uses her imagination to create worlds she can escape to from the mundane tasks of everyday life, such as washing the damn dishes and vacuuming up Legos off the floor--and don't get her started on the mad amount of cat hair on the end of the couch. She gave up on that a long time ago. When the household goes to sleep at night, she writes down everything that happened in her head while doing such tedious chores. But she enjoys living in her own head, so that's pretty cool.
Technology terrifies her. She can barely turn on a computer, and was completely shocked when she'd actually written a book on one. To this day, she has no explanation for this baffling mystery. It took her three years to realize she can take screen shots of messages and pictures of bearded, tattooed men with her phone. Now that she's mastered this task, her phone is slowly dying, and she's nervous that she's going to have to buy a new one and it will take her another three years to learn how to use it.
