SUMMARY: The summer after college, Amelia Chase lands a coveted position as the personal assistant for the brilliant, yet reclusive, Grant Palmer. Grant’s aloof nature and obsessive-compulsive behavior leads Amelia to rethink her position until Grant steps in to rescue her during a bizarre kidnapping attempt. She soon realizes Grant is a man of many secrets, all hidden behind an elaborate façade of self-discipline and control.
Grant Palmer spends his days in an expensive suit and tie, funding charitable works for his family’s Foundation. His nights are reserved for patrolling the small city of Asheville and the bordering mountainside in an effort to protect residents from rogue vampires. Why? He has his own collection of kills to atone for from his own days as a rebellious, blood thirsty killer.
Amelia and Grant’s professional relationship turns personal, distracting Grant from his duties. As the number of victims rise, it becomes apparent that a predator in the hills of North Carolina has a vendetta against Grant. Aware of Grant’s increasing interest, possessing Amelia is one way for this killer to enact his twisted revenge.
I love reading Vampire fiction novels and when I came across this book, the synopsis sounded very interesting so I wanted to give it a shot. Honestly, I liked it but It wasn’t amazing enough for me to love it. While reading this book, it reminded me a lot of Twilight and I wasn’t aware that it was a fanfiction novel. So, later I wasn’t surprised to find that Creature of Habit used to be a Twilight Fanfiction novel. Though it is a fanfiction, it’s got a good storyline and have great potential but needs more work. There’s no explicit scenes in this book so I think young adults can also read this book.
Amelia is a fresh college graduate who is desperately looking for a job and when someone offers her to be a personal assistant to the famous Grant Palmer, she immediately accepts it without aware of him being a vampire. At the first day, she notices that her new boss has a serious case of OCD because he likes to keep his cloths and everything in an organized order. When she first meets him, she feels a dark vibe from him and thinks he is some kind of weird person and also a rude jerk who is very poor in socializing. Grant is a 150 year old vampire who patrols at nights like a vigilante to protect the residents of Ashville from rogue vampires. When Grant first smells the irresistible scent of Amelia he tries very hard to control his thirst but he didn’t know himself that what he feels for her is more than a blood thirst. A relationship between a vampire and a human is forbidden but Grant can’t deny the attraction he feels towards Amelia. Things go haywire when a rogue vampire has set his eyes on Amelia and nearly succeeded in kidnapping her.
Amelia is a bit sassy and witty character who I really liked knowing. She has brought lots of humor in this book and I really loved the way she enacted her revenge on Grant. Grant is kinda aloof character who is very private person and talks very less but later on we’ll also see his other side in which he is very protective towards his loved ones, fierce towards his enemies and very caring towards Amelia. Although Amelia and Grant want to have a professional relationship between them, they can’t ignore the draw they feel towards each other. The romance in this book is very light because it’s a slow burn romance and you’ll find most of it at the end of the book.
The plot of the book was not bad but I think it could’ve been much better. The first part of the book was engaging but the second part was the part where it started to get boring because most of the book was focused on Grant and Amelia’s growing relationship which was enjoyable at the start but later it became uninteresting when there’s nothing happening but the romantic angst between them and the end was a bit unsatisfying because I expected more action. As for the characterization, all of the characters reminded me of Twilight characters but the storyline was little bit different which was the thing that made it interesting. The plot moved in a steady pace through out the book. The writing style wasn’t creative but still it was great and I enjoyed reading it. I may or may not read the sequel to it but I hope it would be much better than this.
Overall, it was good read and I think all the twilight lovers will definitely enjoy reading it. Although this book is less action-packed, it is a perfect mix of suspense, mystery, humor, intrigue and light romance. I would definitely recommend it to all the vampire fiction lovers who love reading vampire love stories with a blend of humor and romance.
