Book Overview

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.​

My Review

Mia Hoddell and her books is not a stranger to me. I have read some of her works and I am very well pleased by them. Chameleon soul is just one of those great books that makes me feel relieved I read them.

I was not so in love with it but I was also not, even remotely close, to thinking it was a bad read. I remember feeling angry at both characters one time because they were both looking and feeling stupid to me.

Raine is traumatized by what happened to her and well, letting go of Teo was her solution. To be honest, when I learned what happened I instantly told myself that she was dumb and that even though what happened to her was horrible I don't think it will turn her into what she was portrayed in the book. I mean, it was mentioned that she was a bubbly lady before that night but, I just, I did not like the thought of her getting worse a year later.

I loved the story line and I loved Teo though I did not get to understand his withdrawal in the end. I am not really keen on Raine but she was surprisingly strong in her state. I would definitely recommend the book to a friend.


“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.
