Book & Author Details:

The Last First Game by Gina Azzi
(The Senior Semester Series, #1)
Publication date: November 2015
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance


When Lila Avers accepts a medical internship through Astor University in California for the fall semester of her senior year, she doesn’t expect much. In fact, she’d rather work on her tan and meet a surfer instead of logging long hours at the hospital and studying. But before she even boards her flight to LA, she meets Astor University wide receiver, Cade Wilkins. A football player. When Cade turns out to be so much more than just muscle, Lila is smitten. Maybe a semester away from her friends won’t be so bad after all.

Cade Wilkins is beyond ready for his last season at Astor. Already being scouted and projected as a NFL draft pick, he’s riding a natural high and all set to breeze through his senior year. To sweeten the start of the fall semester, he meets his dream girl at the airport on his way back to LA. Lila Avers, a blonde, blue-eyed angel. Could life get any better?

When Cade is sidelined by an unexpected injury, he’s devastated to learn of more serious health concerns. As his world implodes, Lila holds him together. But is she strong enough to see him through his recovery?

As their own insecurities and doubts emerge, their new, fragile relationship is tested. Can Cade and Lila handle the ugly truths of falling in love when tensions flare, boundaries are violated, and uncertainty looms over the future of their relationship?



He orders a Guinness.  His hands are splayed flat on the surface of the bar, fingertips tapping softly. His skin is rich and creamy, a shade lighter than cappuccino, and his eyes are dark gray, stormy. Expressive. Sexy as hell.
His hair is dark and cropped short, nearly to his scalp. A dark gray T-shirt hugs his biceps and as he leans forward on the bar stool, a pair of dog tags falls forward out of the deep V-neck of his shirt. He tucks them away carefully.
“Cheers.” He holds his pint up to me when his beer arrives.
“Cheers,” I echo, clinking my glass against his.
“I’m Cade, by the way.”
“Good to meet you, Lila.”
“You too, Cade.” I hide my smile behind my beer as I say his name. It’s a hot name.
“Going back to school?” He kicks lightly at my bags on the floor.
“Something like that. I’m going for an internship at Astor for the semester. I really go to college in Philadelphia.”
He nods. “Your version of study abroad?”
“Exactly. What about you?”
“I’m a student at Astor. Senior year.”
“Oh my God, really? Me too. I mean, I’m a senior. I just thought you were older.”
“Nah. Twenty-two.”
“You got me beat then. I’m still twenty-one.”
He laughs. “Old enough to drink.” He raises his glass to his lips again.
