Must-See Book Trailers: 'Unfixable,' 'Requested Surrender'

(from usatoday.com

Friends,

I am high off the weekend retreat sponsored by my local chapter, the Washington Romance Writers. Awesome workshops, wonderful conversations, a green punk wig (check out my Facebook page for a lookie-loo at that), and hanging with my favorite people — book people.

And I got to read Lick and Play by Kylie Scott and fell in love with the band members of Stage Dive. Really fun books.

To kick off the trailers, I took a look at Unfixable by Tessa Bailey. This video ties together the elements of a romantic New Adult novel with all the right ingredients. The soundtrack is contemporary and has a driving beat at the right points, the images are young and fresh, and the script pulls you all the way through to the end. Great job

How could I not look at a trailer for a book called Bootie and the Beast? I can honestly say that I don't have a clear idea of the plot of the book by Falguni Kothari after looking at the video, but it was so fun and energetic that I had to put it on my TBR list. What did I like? The energy is so high, the graphics dynamic and the colors so bright that I couldn't look away. And the most important part is that the video left me intrigued for more ... perfect.

The final video for this week is Requested Surrender by Riley Murphy. Sensual. Sensual. Sensual. That is the word that went through my head as I watched it. Everything is lush and sexy — from the font choice, to the images, to the original soundtrack written and performed for the trailer. Well done!
