by Susanne Marie Knight comes in the third spot for my favorites. If it
had been in the form of a mini-movie I think it could easily have taken
the first or second slot! I'm assuming the author created this trailer
herself, and she did a fantastic job, I will be purchasing this book
at the earliest opportunity. The pictures
absolutely match the story, and the text frames that have been inserted
before them. This doesn't always happen with book
trailers that use static pictures
and text frames. The creator also put outlines around characters, and
objects in colors
that really brought out what the pictures
and text were trying to convey. A great book
trailer and one I would love
to see put into a mini-movie. You can view this book

Marie Knight certainly has a diverse imagination, and she blends
suspense with a haunting question--why did Neanderthals abruptly
vanish 30,000 years ago--in COMPETITORS! But what if they’re not
extinct? What if they walk among us? This is a plot that can
easily sound far-featched in the wrong author’s hands, but Ms.
Knight pulled it off, suspending my belief and wrapping me in an
enthralling tale. You want an author with unique style? Susanne
Marie Knight is your gal.

4 1/2 stars! I
liked COMPETITORS! I have read other books about Neanderthals and
this species never came across as anything other than primitive.
The Neos in this book are caring, gentle people who value their
ancestors and want what everybody wants in life--to be loved and
understood. I enjoyed the growing awareness and romance between
Vivianne and Max. Despite their differences and the dramas they
are living through, there is a bond between them that neither can
deny. It was amusing to think that the Neos consider Vivianne and
her people savages. The derogatory term of calling someone a
Neanderthal may not be so bad after all. It's always good to see
history turned on its head. I also liked the fact that the killer
is not known until the end. I thought I knew who it was but I was
wrong. The book also got me wondering if there are Neos among us.
There are weirder things out there. If you enjoy books that are
beyond the normal, then I would recommend COMPETITORS! It's a
fresh, unique romance that is kind of sweet and overwhelmingly

This was a very creative look at what could have happened to the
Neanderthals. All the characters provide a full array of
personalities that keep the book interesting. The romance is based
on the strong sexual tension and emotional pull between Max and
Vivianne. While the physical aspects are primarily left to the
reader's imagination, their feelings are openly demonstrated. The
numerous subplots move the story and support the romantic
plotline. But the originality of the story impresses me the most.
Writers who can successfully finish the "what if" in a
logical and fascinating way are few, but Ms. Knight succeeds here.
COMPETITORS! is a great book for those who love a good suspense
and a romantic twist, and those who enjoy a good romance with a
well written paranormal base.

fun read I recommend to anyone who enjoys something different,
something that offers a new outlook and new background for the
characters. This tale fits into many genres and will provide hours
of pleasant reading. Talented author Susanne Marie Knight gives us
a multi-layered story and a new look at the mystery of the
Neanderthal's disappearance. Or did they? Enjoy, I did.

Neanderthals still exist? And if so, would they look just like the
rest of us? Susanne Marie Knight takes those questions and runs
with them in COMPETITORS! and shows us that not everyone is what
they appear to be. When readers first meet Vivianne, she is a
tormented young woman who constantly wonders why she didn’t also
die in the car crash. But as the book progresses, she becomes the
strong woman she must have been before the accident. As for Max...
Max, Max, Max. What a combination of alpha maleness and
intelligence, which this reviewer believes will cause many women to swoon.
He’s dominating, yet gentle, and treats Vivianne with great
respect. An interesting and fun-filled romance, COMPETITORS! is
the perfect read for those looking for something a little
different in their love stories.

Author Susanne Marie Knight has done a
convincing job of making the exotic Max as hypnotic and flat-out
irresistible as he needs to be, to accomplish everything he is
called upon to do. Max isn't only a sex hunk, he is smooth,
educated, and well traveled. He can communicate mentally, and his
sense of smell gives new definition to the word
"intimate." Knight will have readers knocking on her
door asking where they can get their own Neanderthals....
COMPETITORS! is well thought out. Knight has more than a
superficial knowledge about Neanderthals, and she used it to shape
her what-if into a fun, original plot.

that support and play up each other. Good attention paid to the
details, so one can understand the differences between the
characters and the races involved. Susanne Knight has granted her
audience fantasy and mystery combined with a science fictional
blend along with a romantic edge to satisfy most any reader's
