Flynn is stuck - depressed, recently dumped, and living at his mom’s house. The supermarket was supposed to change all that. An ordinary job and a steady check. Work isn’t work when it’s saving you from yourself. But things aren’t quite as they seem in these aisles. Arriving to work one day to a crime scene, Flynn’s world collapses as the secrets of his tortured mind are revealed. And Flynn doesn’t want to go looking for answers at the supermarket. Because something there seems to be looking for him.

I listen to almost an audiobook a day and this was by far the worst. The narration was fine but the story....
1) The protagonist sounds like a self-important spoiled whiny teenage boy. I understand his struggles are very real but he was written so poorly I hated him with passion.
2) The “plot twist” was so obvious and on the nose, even I saw it coming from the beginning. And I’m the idiot that NEVER sees plot twists coming. Now in a good book that should not actually spoil the story but there were so many hints and nudges that it felt like the author felt so damn smug and awesome for creating this stupid plot twist.
3) The dialogs were so fake and stilted it hurt. Trying so damn hard to be cool that it was just creepy.

The only reason I finished this book is my own stubbornness. I can’t believe that this has a 5 star rating. I feel offended by how bad this book is, honestly...

Jane’s days at a Midwest insurance company are perfectly ordinary. She blends in well, unremarkably pretty and extra efficient. She’s just the kind of woman middle manager Steven Hepsworth likes - meek, insecure, and willing to defer to a man. No one has any idea who Jane really is. Least of all Steven. But plain Jane is hiding something. Nothing can distract Jane from going straight for his heart: allowing herself to be seduced into Steven’s bed, to insinuate herself into his career and his family, and to expose all his dirty secrets. So she can take it all away. Just as he did to her.

Oh man! This was such a satisfying book. Super interesting because of the perspective of a sociopath who the author managed to make very likable somehow. And though Steve, the target of her revenge, was so overly terrible it was def cliche as hell it worked in favor of the story making her revenge just incredibly satisfying.
The narrator did have weird intonation (which was obvious from the sample so at least no nasty surprise). It wasn’t terrible but did kind of feel weird at times.

The Ruhar hit us on Columbus Day. There we were, innocently drifting along the cosmos on our little blue marble, like the Native Americans in 1492. Over the horizon came ships of a technologically advanced, aggressive culture, and BAM! There went the good old days, when humans got killed only by each other. So, Columbus Day. It fits. When the morning sky twinkled again, this time with Kristang starships jumping in to hammer the Ruhar, we thought we were saved.

Ok this was just the worst. The “hero” is an idiot. The first half of the story is just like any story that focuses on the military. Replace the aliens with any other warring people on earth and you would not notice. While we’re talking about the aliens: really? Nodding and shaking your head is the same with aliens? It’s not even universal among different cultures here on earth? And skippy? While at least I kind of enjoyed the character, it’s definitely lazy story telling!
So in summary: no! Just no!
