Never Saw Me Coming: A Novel by Vera Kurian

(Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book!)

about book:

“I’ve never met someone like me, but when I do, eventually, I think it will be like two wolves meeting in the night, sniffing and recognizing a fellow hunter.”

Meet Chloe Sevre. Freshman honor student. Average-seeming, legging-wearing, hot girl next door…and diagnosed psychopath with an IQ of 135. Her hobbies include yogalates, frat parties, and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her.

Now Chloe and six other students at John Adams College are part of an unusual clinical study that includes smartwatches to track their moods and movements, in exchange for free tuition. The study, led by a renowned psychiatrist, has inadvertently brought together some of the most dangerous minds who feel no guilt or fear. When one of the participants is found murdered, it becomes obvious they’re all in danger. Chloe goes from hunter to prey, and joins forces with two other psychopaths in the program to discover why they’re being targeted – if they could only trust each other.

Wildly entertaining with compelling characters and a vividly conjured campus setting, NEVER SAW ME COMING will keep you up all night, pinned to the page, wondering why you’re rooting for a would-be killer.

my thoughts:

Wow! Never Saw Me Coming had suspense, mystery, and so many thrills. I gobbled it up in one sitting. I just loved getting lost in Chloe's life on campus - she's a freshman, she's an honor student, and she's a diagnosed psychopath. She's part of a study with six other students (also psychopaths) who are being monitored to track the movements and their moods. Talk about a dangerous study!

Chloe has a plan. Something awful happened to her when she was young and she is seeking revenge. So, her plan was to attend this college and track her prey - the person responsible for that horrible and unforgivable night - and kill him.  Except, her plan has been sidetracked due to the murder of one of her fellow psychopaths. Yep, looks like someone is tracking the students in Chloe's group study and they are murdering them. Say what?! Could there be another psychopath on the loose, or is someone out for revenge?! 

Kurian has written a gripping story that will pull you right in and keep you flipping pages faster than you can say the word 'psychopath.'  The characters are horrible people that you want to keep reading about. The story is addictive and let's be honest, revenge stories will always pique a reader's interest. Overall, this is one book you won't want to put down!

I just LOVED Never Saw Me Coming and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for their next great read - you won't want to miss out on this one! Check it out!!
