The Maverick by Jennifer Valenti
Short Description: A brutal sexual assault by her employer leads to one woman’s unexpected journey to shape a generation. The Jane Valiante Series, beginning with The Maverick, examines the modern challenges women still face as they make their way through the post-Me-Too era.
Book Blurb: Jane Valiante had put so much of her life on hold to care for her father and little brother back in Florida since her mom died, that she’d all but forgotten she once had ambitions of her own. She had nearly resigned to a life of ordinary when the hottest tech company in the world offers to fly her to New York for the job of her dreams.
After what shapes up to be a whirlwind of an interview, Jane starts to feel overwhelmed and insecure about her chances. Feeling defeated, she’s surprised to receive an invitation to the holiday party from the CEO and founder, Peter Wright, planned for that evening. Hoping this could be her opportunity to seal the deal, she happily accepts. That’s when everything in her world turns upside down as she finds herself back in her hotel room with Peter after the party. What started as a drunken misunderstanding leads to a brutal sexual assault that leaves Jane shattered.
Torn by the violence of what happened that night and the shocking choices she inevitably makes, Jane embarks on a precedent-setting journey to right the wrongs she has endured that could ultimately define the fate of a generation.
Jennifer Valenti’s debut novel, The Maverick, is the first in a series of seven novels entitled “The Jane Valiante Series.” The series crosses multiple themes within the new adult/women’s fiction genre, particularly focused on stories reminiscent of the “Me Too” movement.
Miss Valenti is an Emmy award-winning technology executive whose most recent career success has been in the field of artificial intelligence. Prior to moving into technology, she had a successful career in film and television as a Producer and Assistant Director with credits such as The Waterboy, Men in Black II, and Dawson’s Creek.
She lives in Tampa with her two sons, Dylan and Tyler, and their sweet dog, Jackson.
