I have it all: my dream career as a Formula 1 driver, more money than I can spend, crowds who cheer my name "Teo Coates," and an endless supply of beautiful women to warm my bed as I travel the world.

I should be happy. I should love my life.

But none of it means anything without her.

One year ago, the love of my life broke off our two-year relationship via a phone call. No e

My absolute pet hate is being 'vaguebooked'; hinting at some personal angst then going all coy when someone asks you about it has more than a whiff of dramarama/look at me about it and I have zero patience with that shit. Just out with it, or keep it private ffs, but don't mention it then go all vague and evasive. Unfortunately, this book was the contemporary second chance romance form of vaguebook.

The prologue tells us up front that Raine has gone through some kind of ordeal and that

I'm a first time reader of this author, and boy have I been missing out big time. I FREAKIN' LOVED Chameleon Soul a ton! Raine Wilkins had a beautiful life with the man she loved until one fateful night destroyed it in an instant. She walks out on Formula 1 driver, Teo Coates life without explanation. Little does he know she's shielding him from horrifying events that would affect his career, so he walks away to finish his race season. But she breaks both their hearts into pieces, and on top of ...more

This is a story of what happens when you love someone more than you love yourself and you’re willing to sacrifice everything for them. It’s a sad story…but a slight spoiler: true love wins.

Even though the synopsis is written from the perspective of Teo, much of the book comes from his girlfriend, Raine. I found Teo's story to be tied up in what happens to her. There is some trauma in the story (hinted at in the first few pages) and the repercussions of it. Because of how the story is co

After reading the blurb about this book I had to have it. This book sounded so good and I can truly say that I wasn't wrong about that. I loved the characters in this book and the story line was one that will have you hooked. There were times where I just wanted to slap some sense into the characters, punch them for their awful behavior, laugh, cry, you name it I was feeling it at some point in this book.

Raine makes a choice in order to protect Teo's racing career by breaking up with him. With

I am a zombie. Not four words I'd normally begin a review with, but true nonetheless. Why? Two reasons. Reason One: I am still awake at 3:40am writing my review. Reason Two: Mia Hoddell has ripped my heart out, thus, I must be dead.

Now we've got that established, let's get on to what I thought of the book. I am not sure I have many coherent words to form sentences right now, but let's gi

Talk about an unexpected gem of a book! I was hooked from the very first sentence, until the very last! Chameleon Soul is the first book in the Chequered Flag Series by Mia Hoddell and if the other books are equally as good as this one it’s gonna be one hell of a series!

Raine Wilkins was happy and in a loving relationship for over 2 years with Teo Coates, an up and coming Formula 1 driver tipped for greatness and predicted to become World Champion, unexpectedly leaves him offering no explanation

This book was originally reviewed on The Book Hookup.

**I received a copy of this book from the author, but that did not influence the review**

This second chance romance had a great premise with the tease of a romantic suspense (and a very swoony Teo Coates), but took a long time to gear up and was just shy of living up to its potential.

The reader knew right away that something bad had happened to Raine, but we didn’t know exactly what went down. In fact, it took a long time for any type of detai

Talk about a book I wasn't expecting...

Yes, I'd read the synopsis before signing up. Yes, I've read another book by Mia Hoddell, so yes, I had an idea of what to expect as far as writing style.

Still, I wasn't prepared for the full emotional journey this book takes us on -- as well as the emotional journey that sets us up for the next book.

Ms. Hoddell wrote Raine's character fabulously. A young woman who endured a terrible night and therefore forced a love to separate, shielding him from the pain

I quite enjoyed Chameleon Soul in terms of the second chance romance aspect and having professional racing as the backdrop of it all. Raine was a victim of a vicious attack and she deals with what is clearly post-traumatic stress disorder with the help of her two best friends, one of whom just happens to be her ex-boyfriend Teo's brother. There's a

Raine Wilkins is alive and in the hospital when she must make the most heartbreaking decision and that is to break up with her boyfriend Teo Coates so he can focus on his career as a Formula 1 driver and not worry about her.

Then Raine runs into Teo again and she must face her feelings for him and deal with secrets from the past that Teo knows nothing about. Teo knows that his brother Dustin, who is also Raine's best friend, is aware of what is happening with Raine and he must truly decide if hi

This was an amazing story by an author that is brand new to me. In it we have Teo and Raine, two people who have known each other for years and love each other more than life itself. But one day, completely out of the blue, Teo receives a call from Raine ending their relationship and shattering his heart. Fast forward one year and the two are brought together again, but this Raine is very different than the woman he remembers. The two are faced with the choice to either confront their past in ho

The first line in this book intrigued me. The author did a great job of teasing the reader throughout the book exactly what happened to shatter this woman. That said, we get to watch this woman deal with her horror and the loyal friends who help her.

I found myself feeling for all the people surrounding her as much as Raine herself. She made a huge sacrifice for the man she loves--even though he didn't know it. She has dealt with her life for a year.

Teo, took her at her word and left when she to

This was a great love conquers all story. This is the second novel that I have read by Mia Hoddell and she has made a fan because her love stories are amazing. They are so relatable especially because they deal a lot with mental health issues-mainly anxiety and depression. I love that Hoddell digs so deeply into issues that most authors don't.

I will admit I spent a long time trying to figure out what happened to Raine (loved that name) that made her the way that she was. What horrible thing happ

I so was hooked on this book after just reading the blurb to it. I started it and wasn't sure I'd like it but as I kept reading, I was sucked into the storyline and had to know what happened. Rewind two years ago, Teo was just starting out in the racing world and Raine was his world. Just when things were looking good, Raine had her world rocked and gave up everything including her love. Teo, had no clue what happened but continued his race career. Raine, has been living in fear for the past two ...more

This book is punched with emotion and deals with some intense scenes involving panic attacks. Raine is a girl living in fear and she is finally doing a little better but she is overcome with emotion seeing Tao and the aftermath of it coming out in the press. She is trying to rebuild her life and you just feel so sorry for her and everything she is dealing with.

I honestly feel so sorry for Teo as he has no clue on why Raine really ended it with him and is still in love with her. He knows that so

If you haven't read a Mia Hoddell book yet, then you need start now by reading Chameleon Soul. It filled with romance, suspense, chemistry and mystery.

Teo Coates, a formula one rookie driver and Raine Wilkins have been dating for two years. When one night, Raine calls Teo to break up with him out of the blue. What Teo doesn't realize is that Raine just made the ultimate decision for the man she loves.

Chameleon Soul by Mia Hoddell Review

4.5 Stars

The author’s ability to draw you into the story and keep you asking questions is what really shines in this novel. From the first line, “I was broken…” you are frantically turning pages to find out why Raine is broken. The characters are wonderful and real-life—people you can easily relate to and the friendships are deep. We should all be so lucky to have such great people in our lives!

This is such a British book, and seemed wonderfully exotic to my A

Mia's writing is captivating and so beautiful that when you read her words you easily fall into the world she has created and find that the characters become your friends or foes. Your heart aches and gets crushed and mended right alongside them.

This book is no exception, my heart hurt for Teo, watching him become a heart broken mess was painful. But the story was powerful and so well put together that you felt that emotion through the pages.

This is a story of Love, loss, heartache and redempt

This story starts off with a bang and then just kind of rest on that bang. I mean it isn't a bad story matter of fact there is a wide range of players here and that helps keep it interesting. A few you want to smack and others that are pretty awesome. But the whole thing is this, the reason this starts off as such a great read is then pushed to the side as a footnote and never really taken care of. I mean yes they have to fight to be a couple and all that and the author has skill but it came out ...more

Lately I’ve been exercise my need to explore new authors. Sometimes it works in my favor and sometimes it doesn’t. When it comes to Mia Hoddell’s Chameleon Soul I on the fence and I feel conflicted.Before agreeing to give Chameleon Soul a read I consulted with Goodreads for some reviews. Upon doing so I found multiple that was glowing and that gave me the warm fuzzy feeling. While the idea of the story had so much potential I just could not connect with ANY of the characters.

“Even if I wanted to comfort her I couldn’t. I didn’t know the first thing about what was going on. She wasn’t going to push me away this time because I wasn’t leaving until I got my answers. This time I’d fight for her.”

Fear is very real and dangerous. It clings to vulnerability and weaknesses, providing the perfect opportunity for everlasting scars. Fear causes us to commit to unintelligible actions based on the unknown or even worse—past experiences. Hoddell shares an amazing fictional story

Chameleon Soul is my first read by Mia Hoddell, I may have had a hard time connecting with and picturing the characters at first, but that did not stop me from reading. I was grabbed from the mystery of the story line in the beginning, I needed the answers to the secrets and lies that were keeping these two characters apart.

Raine Wilkins, is struggling to keep herself together, the memories of what she went through a year ago weighed heavy on her heart. Raine believed at the time that the scar

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.
