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.
A 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Review of CHAMELEON SOUL by Mia Hoddell
By Amy at Pages Abound
“Everything to do with you is hard to forget, Raine. I remember it all.”
Chameleon Soul is another winner from Mia Hoddell, an author who has captured herself another fangirl due to the humanity, the realistic struggles, and the grit and determination Hoddell weaves through her characters.
In this newest release and first of the Chequered Flag Series, Hoddell introduces readers to Raine and Teo, two characters whose past have left them both suffering from the hurt and betrayal of ending a long term relationship. After a year apart, the two once again find themselves thrown together, resulting in an immediate explosion of feelings, fears, and insecurities. As the two traverse the intricacies of walls they have both built, the fame that surrounds Teo, and the secret that Raine has been hiding, readers are taken on a beautiful adventure to discover that true love can overcome all obstacles when people are willing to open their hearts, communicate with one another, and work together.
This is a fantastic read. I raced through this in one sitting, cheering for the Raine and Teo as they worked to cross the finish line and applauding the overwhelming love and support the two had from Raine’s best friend and Teo’s brother– Dustin. This is a must read for 2016. Filled with a couple of twist and turns, this is a story will give you a glimpse into the compassion and support a new groups of friends have for one another, the impact that decisions have not only on those who make them, but also those that surround them, and will provide hope for redemption through truth and honesty.
Mia, I am clamoring for the next installment. March cannot get here fast enough. Thank you for writing such powerful books with serious topics in which hope still reigns! You have given me yet another book I will not be able to forget!
Readers, stay tuned for the second book in which more about Dustin will be revealed! Boy… does he have a secret to share!
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.
