I didn't expect to like this book because I don't typically read mysteries/thrillers. However, I did like some of the characters and the idea was unique. These are all college kids enrolled in a psychological study of psychopaths. Can they be trained to behave as the rest of humanity and not be dangerous to society? Well, someone starts killing them and they have to find out who it is. ( )

Thanks to Park Row Books / Harper Collins for the ARC of Never Saw Me Coming.
This was an unusual thriller-as most psychological thrillers lead up to a psychopath being a suspect, this begins with an entire group of psychopaths in a university study run by a professor who counseled the infamous CRD serial killer. The main character, Chloe, has come to DC for the sole purpose of finding and killing Will. However, she doesn’t want anyone to catch on to this. So, when two students in the study are found murdered, she teams up with Charles and Andre to discover who might be hunting their group.
This novel was twisted!!
I look forward to reading more from this author! ( )

The Story:

I tried to do this without spoilers but I couldn't. I really liked this book right up until we discovered who the killer is. We spend a lot of time in this book getting to know Chloe, Charles and the other guy who’s name I cannot remember but they aren’t really involved in the payoff at all. These other characters we don’t happen upon until more than half way in the book and don’t get to know, get all the glory in the end. That was disappointing to me.
On the bright side the writing style was great, I was thoroughly hooked from the start and was kept guessing for quite some time. The narrator was perfect.

This book steps into the life of a psychopath.

Chole at 18 years old is attending John Adams University as a freshman in DC with a scholarship based on joining a program with six other psychopaths. That's right...psychopaths that have a reputation of aggressive and violent acts of behavior at times. In this special program, these students are monitored with smart watches and occasional questionnaires. With an estimated 8,000 students at this school, their guess is that 300 are probably psychopathic. But with this evaluation, the directors hope to learn how to help these participants learn to adjust without violence - and hopefully assist others like them as well.

Quickly into the book, there are two deaths within the group of seven psychopaths. Chole escaped an attack and is now trying to use all of her resources to track down the killer. She said, "Maybe they thought they were hunting me, but I was also hunting them, thinking two steps ahead to their high-profile arrest." She also has a target set out for another student in her group, Will, who raped her when she was just 12. She is searching for a video that was made and trying to figure out which friends are trustworthy.

This is a story that most likely has most people on the edge of their seats with suspense. Yet, for me it was a little too long, too slow with too many character names to keep track of. It's probably geared more for YA readers.

My thanks to Park Row Publishers, Vera Kurian and NetGalley for allowing me to read this advanced copy with an expected release date of September 7, 2021. ( )

My thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my e-ARC.

Chloe Sevre is a psychopath. As such, she, along with six others, qualifies for a clinical psychological study being conducted at John Adams University. And also a free ride. Enrollment at this particular institution was imperative. It would give her convenient access to Will, a junior and...her target.

He may not recognize or even remember her. But, she will never forget. But, what if he does? That would complicate things. But, she would handle it. Then, another complication. Fellow participants in the study are being killed off. She may need help with this. But, who to ask? Should she team up with surviving participants? Can they be trusted? After all, HER life may be at stake. She couldn't care less about the others. They're just a means to an end.

I was so thrilled when I was approved to read this. Unfortunately, the book didn't deliver the same thrill. It had promise. Intriguing premise. Campus setting. Alternating perspectives. Short chapters. It started well, but then it started to drag. And the end... didn't work for me. ( )
