After one fateful night, Raine Wilkins’ life has never been the same…
Two years into a relationship with Formula 1 driver Teo Coates, Raine walks out of his life without offering an explanation. To shield him from horrifying events that are best kept secret, Raine breaks her own heart and the heart of the man she loves. And left with no choice, Teo is forced to abandon Raine to finish his race season.
However, Teo always wins, and losing Raine’s heart has only made him more determined to reclaim it…
Now, a year later, he’s back, and she’s his only goal. But Raine is no longer the same girl he left behind; she’s broken by the past and struggling to cope with each day. Unbearable memories have her nights plagued with fear, while her days are spent deliberately hiding away to avoid triggering full-blown panic attacks. Therefore, when Teo returns as England’s favourite driver, and demands answers, all of Raine’s careful planning is destroyed.
She is thrown into the one place she never wants to be—the spotlight.
Her newfound fame as Teo’s public girlfriend raises old dangers, and exposes her to a group who will stop at nothing to tear them apart. If Raine and Teo are to be together, they must confront their past. However, only Raine knows the truth behind what happened during that sinister night, and revealing her secrets may cause Teo to leave for good.


“Raine, wait!”
Footsteps thundered behind me, forcing me to run faster as my vision began tunnelling. Bouncing off the walls as I rounded corners, I attempted to trace my steps back to the exit through the labyrinth of hallways.
I could hear the footsteps growing louder, as if Nadine was right on my heels, but I couldn’t look without losing my rhythm.
Abruptly, I was jerked to a stop by a hand on my wrist. I spun at the touch, flinging my back against the wall with a scream. My movements were too fast to take anything in.
“What the f*** are you doing here?” The voice that snarled the words was not Nadine’s. Even full of malice I could never forget his tone. Despite that, my brain was no longer thinking logically.
I raised my hands instinctively to shield my face, the line between reality and my memories blurring. The brightly lit corridor was too tight and darkness encroached from every corner.
I was back in the alley. The rough bricks bit into my spine as I cowered into the building praying I could make myself invisible.
“No, not again,” I whimpered, my hands shaking. “Please, not again.”
In my mind they were coming at me, closing the distance.
No matter how tiny I made myself they could still see me.
“Don’t hurt me. Let me go!” White-hot panic rose in my chest, consuming me and fuelling the memory. Everything felt so similar, I wasn’t even seeing what was really in front of me.


4 Emotionally Suspense Filled Stars!!

Chameleon Soul is the first book in a new series by Mia Hoddell in The Chequered Flag Series. It can be read as a standalone but I would recommend reading them all in order once the rest of the books in this series comes out, as there will be interconnecting characters.

Raine Wilkins life changed forever over a year ago. She once dated the now soon to be Formula 1 champion Teo Coates for 2 years then broke things off with him when something traumatic and devastating happened to her, trying to protect Teo the only way she though she could.
Teo Coates is on break for 4 weeks from Formula 1 and is back in his home town when he bumps into Raine after a year apart. Having spent the majority of that year trying to forget Raine the only way he knew how, by using other women to forget her, nothing could have prepared Teo for the feelings he tried to forget that all come rushing back.
Teo having been unaware for the actual reason for Raine breaking things off, wants to get his answers now that he has her in his sights, and nothing is going to get in his way of finding out what really caused Raine to break things off.
Raine who is still struggling with the aftermath of what happened to her a year ago, which is incredibly heartbreaking to read, tries to stay away from Teo and not tell him what really happened ,but when you love someone that deeply you just can’t leave them for the second time.
This is the first book of Mia’s that I’ve ever read and I have to say that I absolutely loved it! Just from reading the prologue I was instantly hooked! I devoured the book as quick as I could (work got in the way of finishing quicker, I know the inconvenience of my job! Lol) I loved Raine as a heroine, no matter what she went through ( which was a lot) she was so incredibly strong, even if she didn’t realise this herself sometimes, and Teo *sighs* he was so incredibly sweet! I had a constant goofy smile on my face from how much of a sweetheart he was! I loved Raine and Dustin’s relationship also, they had such a strong amazing friendship that at times I felt a little jealous for how they were together. I am also looking forward to seeing what happens in Dustin’s book! This book has it all in my opinion, a second chance at romance which I love, and the mystery of trying to figure out what happened to Raine that was so incredibly bad, she was forced to end things with Teo in the first place. My emotions were all over the place when reading this book which to me means I’ve just read a freaking incredible book!
