The elevator pitch for Never Saw Me Coming is sensational. Seven psychopaths get a full college scholarship if they agree to participate in a psychological study and wear a smart watch. Chloe, the main protagonist, has another agenda. Kill her childhood abuser.
Unfortunately, the characters are not differentiated well. They also don’t seem very psycho. Or maybe being inside a psychopath’s head is boring? No wonder they become serial killers, lol.
In addition, the pacing feels off. Usually in thrillers there are waves of action and suspense. In Never Saw Me Coming, there are many more lulls than swells.
So, between the slow pacing and my lack of connection with the characters, this book gets 3 stars from me.
Thanks to Park Row, Harlequin Books, and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
