From Goodreads: “Meet Chloe Sevre. She’s a freshman honour student, a leggings-wearing hot girl next door, who also happens to be a psychopath. Her hobbies include yogalates, frat parties, and plotting to kill Will Bachman, a childhood friend who grievously wronged her. Chloe is one of seven students at her DC-based college who are part of an unusual clinical study for psychopaths—students like herself who lack empathy and can’t comprehend emotions like fear or guilt. The study, led by a renowned psychologist, requires them to wear smart watches that track their moods and movements. When one of the students in the study is found murdered in the psychology building, a dangerous game of cat and mouse begins, and Chloe goes from hunter to prey. As she races to identify the killer and put her own plan into action, she’ll be forced to decide if she can trust any of her fellow psychopaths—and everybody knows you should never trust a psychopath. Never Saw Me Coming is a compulsive, voice-driven thriller by an exciting new voice in fiction, that will keep you pinned to the page and rooting for a would-be killer. “

This audiobook was great fun! I know that sounds weird for a book about psychopaths and a serial killer, but I loved it!
Chloe Sevre was such a great character, and just as the synopsis above says, I couldn’t help rooting for her! Even though Chloe was up to very dubious things, I really didn’t want her to get caught. I didn’t quite always agree with her, but I could understand why she wanted to kill Will Bachman!
As well as wanting to murder Will, Chloe got caught up in a hunt for a serial killer on campus. She had to decide whether to join forces with some of the other psychopaths on the same programme, looking out for each other. This was really interesting, and I really couldn’t decide if I could trust them. I mean one of them could’ve been the killer they were trying to find! 😱
There were some really tense chapters, when I really thought the worst was going to happen, only to realise that it was just all in my mind! Phew!
Brittany Pressley’s narration was absolutely superb! Her portrayal of Chloe was perfect, as were her voice talents for the other students and minor characters. I will definitely be looking out for other audiobooks with her narrating.
I highly recommend this one on audio if you enjoy psychological thrillers.
