They killed my sister and infected me.
Now I have to pick up the pieces before I die.
I've spent the last five months trying to find the bastard who did this. Yet, even with the help of a hot amnesiac vampire named Jude, I've had zero luck.
Until now. And it could change everything. Even though I grew up in a family that hunted the supernatural, there were still things I didn't believe in.
Now I have to hurry for the slim chance that I could save us all. Because when you fight against immortal vampires, you're the one who's running out of time.

Damned If I Do is so different and original. The idea of a vampire hunter becoming infected with a deadly virus from the very creatures she hunts but then relying on them brings an interesting dynamic to a great book.
I enjoyed having this story written from different character’s POV It really works with developing the story.
Really good narration which gives pace to the story and depth to the characters. A great story matched with great narration.
I felt excited and entertained because there is a lot of action and adventure. Edie is kick-ass.

"Great Paranormal Romance"
One of my favorite genre's is paranormal romance. This story drew me in and I had a hard time putting it down. The story was unique and nothing like the typical vampire story.
Edie is a descendent from a line of vampire hunters known as the "Harker". After her sister's death, Edie has to take her place as the Harker.
She is out for revenge to kill the Vampire that killed her sister and infected her. She only has a short time to live and time is running out for her.
Her cousin Carl and Jude are helping her find information she needs. Jude is an unusual vampire that has lost his memory but has strong feelings for Edie. He will do anything to protect her.
The story is well written and I always understood what was going on. There is magic, violence, suspense, drama, romance, and betrayal. I was shocked with the twist at the end. It was not a predictable one and caught me by surprise. It ends with a Cliffhanger that leaves you craving more. I can't wait to read book 2.
Kristin James did an awesome job reading this book. I'll be looking into some more of the stories she has read. Great performance.
I'll be looking out for more books written by Erin Hayes as well. She has created a great world in "Dammned If I Do" and I'm looking forward to reading more of her books.

Suspenseful and with lots of action, this book gives a rather different slant on the whole vampire scene and the role of the Harker family. The writing is absorbing and the characters are engaging. It really caught me and kept me reading when I should have been taking care of other things. No sense in giving a synopsis when the publisher's blurb takes care of that. I enjoyed it and highly recommend it.
Kristin James has a real talent for giving the characters definition and life.
This came as Whispersync on the cheap.
I was impressed by this audiobook. Now I need to read/listen to the next one. I can't say much without spoilers but, vampire hunter and vampire hunting together throw in a little romance and poof great storyline.oh, cant forget betrayed and villains. Mix and enjoy

"EXCELLENT NEW TAKE ON VAMPS!"
I can never get enough VAMPS!! However I absolutely loved the new way this book is!! A Whole New World!! LOVED THE BOOK! DEFINITELY WORTH A CREDIT!! THE NARRATOR DID A GOOD JOB!
"Damned if you do!"
Narration - Kristin James - pretty good! Good storyteller, good character differentiation.
The story involves a vampire hunter who is on the hunt of her life - literally. She's been bit by a nasty vampire and given a virus that is slowly spreading and killing her. She gets help from her cousin, a vampire with amnesia, a witch of an aunt, some family from beyond and a smattering of other interesting characters.
The whole story is really a mystery and you'll find yourself proposing theories about who is what and what on earth will happen next and what certain warnings mean. Oh, and I Loved her little niece!
I was a little disappointed with the Scooby Doo type reveal towards the end, I personally like for there to be a little more of a complicated revealing or dissection of 'the bad guys' vs them just spewing all their own evil deeds, but, what ya gonna do!
Other than that, I really enjoyed the story and would definitely continue the series.

"Easy summer beach read"
Its in the middle of a crowded pack as far as other audiobooks I've listened to, I've listened to hundreds....I used to listen to books on tape as a kid, then books on CD etc before audible was created.
Yes, I would recommend this book to friends who like paranormal/paranormal romance genres. I liked the Harker aspect, very cool that the power passed down generations and if something happens to Edie it will pass to her 3 year old niece, scary, I can’t imagine a 3 year old with that kind of power. Edie's cousin, Carl, was one of my favorite characters and I would definitely read a standalone book about him. Jude was okay to me, I didn’t really connect on the Jude and Edie love story deal, it was secondary to the story for me.
I love Kristin James's narration, she is amaaazing! I like her accents and her voice is so nice to listen to.

"A Different Take on the Vampire Genre"
The fact that the characters were so well fleshed out and all the action. There's tons of hidden romance, but no sex. It actually makes you want the story to draw out as long as possible. The anticipation makes it so worth while. I feel like if Jude and Edie should physically hook up, it'll be so explosive.
I don't think I've ever read a vampire book quite like this one. Not yet anyway. I'm loving this take on the genre.
Getting to listen to the different emotions come through the voices. This such a well narrated story.
The part that moved me the most was when Jude finally revealed that he was in love with Edie. It brought a sweet smile to my face.
I can't wait to start the next book!!! I HAVE to know what happens next!!
"Love My Vampires"
Yes, I usually get more of a visual in my mind with an audio book, only if the narrator is good.
I love paranormal and vampires are one of my favorites. This author portrayed vampires as most authors do with a few variations. I always love different authors ideas of what vampires are and how they are still similar to humans. Also the fact that a vampire can fall in love with a vampire hunter.
I can't remember if I have listened to other Kristin James narrations. She did a great job, enjoyed her voice.
No. Nothing against the book, I normally don't laugh or cry reading a book, doesn't mean I enjoy them any less.
