About The Book:
Release Date: July 8, 2020
Silicon Valley investor Ryn Brennan is on the verge of achieving everything she’d dreamed. She’s proven herself in the male-dominated venture capital world, benefits from the support of her successful husband, and is about to close the deal of her career.
Everything is going exactly as planned, until she meets Carly, her husband’s mistress, across the negotiating table.
Carly clawed her way back from being a teenage runaway to become an accomplished scientist, loving single mom, and co-founder of her startup. Once she marries her perfect, fiancé, she’ll secure that ‘normal’ life she craves. But she’s blindsided to discover her not so perfect fiancé, is already married—to Ryn, her company’s biggest investor.
In an industry full of not-so-subtle sexism, can the two women rise above, and work together to overcome heartbreak and ensure their success?
Miss W’s Review:
5 Stars !
The Exit Strategy is a dynamic, fast paced debut novel by Lainey Cameron . The story is told in alternating perspectives of two women both in the high tech corporate arena. There is a #metoo vibe to this book.
This book is expertly written by an tech expert and shows how difficult and cut throat it can be to work in this industry.
The characters are well developed, complex and highly relatable. The atmosphere is one I am all too familiar with. I devoured every word of this book. Secrets, betrayals and vulture like venture capitalists will keep you on the edge of your seat.
