    One thought on “The Last First Game”

    1. Man, I really thought I was going to love this book and was even highlighting like crazy in the beginning when everything was all nice and was easygoing. That changed when Cade learned he has cancer and the book takes on a more serious, emotional turn. Cade and Lila lost their playful banter and I lost interest. Sorry if that seems kinda mean since they were both dealing with a lot of crap but I started skimming to get to the end. I guess I was really enjoying them getting to know each other and [...]

    2. This book was about as real as life gets. Lila is your typical college student. She's going away for a semester to accomplish her last step before med school and is scared to leave her friends behind. They've been with her every step of the way since freshman year of college. I could relate to the terror of college winding down.All her fears disappear when she meets Cade, golden boy extraordinaire. He's a football star on track for the NFL. But, for now, he's still just a college student. There' [...]

    3. To an outsider, Lila Avers seems to have her life on the right track. She has the support of an awesome group of friends and will be starting a new medical internship in LA. Still she struggles with family issues and her career choice, so she really doesn't have time for a new relationship. But fate has other plans for her when she meets a handsome stranger in the airport while waiting for her plane to take her to LA.Cade Wilkins has it all--a great family, a fantastic group of friends and a pos [...]

    4. Something about the synopsis of this book called to me. I'm so glad I listened to my instincts and read the book. I really enjoyed reading it. There's a great blend of romance, friendship, and emotion that grabbed my attention. At the heart of the book is a sports romance, but there's so much more to it.I loved that the book was told from both points of view, especially with everything Cade and Lila experience. It was really easy to like Lila and Cade. They were friendly, considerate, and talent [...]

    5. AffirmingI found this very bright read of two young people turning the corner on their lives. One is torn by her parents divorce and her fathers pressure to pursue a career that really doesn’t appeal. Interestingly, a violent attempted rape serves as the catalyst for her to seize her life’s story. Her boyfriend isn’t so lucky. Is chosen career is snatched from him. Add some true friends and villains into the mix for some sideline drama. Good pace. Good read.

    6. The Last First Game—Senior Semester #1—by Gina AzziThis is a tough review for me to write. It’s not that the story between Lila Avers and Cade Wilkins is not good. It is. There is so much potential for this to be a truly incredible story, but I didn’t really feel it was fully delivered. It was good–I enjoyed it, but it didn’t leave my heart aching or skipping a beat like it surely could have.Lila is a college student on the east coast, heading out west to do a semester and figure out [...]

    7. 'The Last First Game' by Gina Azzi was a light, breezy read. I am generally a young adult reader, and even though this story definitely could have fit into that genre if the main characters were just a few years younger, I found myself enjoying the New Adult feel that this novel personified.Main character Lila is starting her internship at Astor University in California during first semester of senior year, while best friends Mia, Maura, and Emma are all going their own ways as well during that [...]

    8. Lila is just about to start her senior year of college, but instead of her regular college on the east coast, she will be in Southern California for a semester as an intern for the medical program. She should be enthused about getting the internship, but really she has no interest in becoming a doctor and is just following through on what her parents want. Kade is heading back to campus for his senior year after attending a the year anniversary of his brother's death. Kade and Lila have a chance [...]

    9. Love the story. The romance, the defying all odds and coming out stronger and better with a great perspective on life and love is all wonderful. I had a few meh moments with Lila.Overall Lila was good for a character. She started out fun and sweet. she was a little bit too self absorbed though. Others issues and problems didn’t compare to hers and her issues. She focused more on me and not what is going on around her. Yes she had a family dynamic that was fractured but she allowed others to de [...]

    10. This book captured my attention from the very front cover, as lately I have been watching and getting into the old TV series "Friday Night Lights" which is a football college series and enjoying it. This story focuses on Lila who is studying to become a doctor and this Fall she has accepted an internship and Cade who is on his way to becoming one of the next picks for the NFL which is the National Football League. The pair meet at the airport before heading and finding out that they are both stu [...]

    11. A one star bookI wanted, and actively tried to like this book. I slogged through, reading every word, searching for a single redeeming quality in writing, characters or even the situations they were dealing with. There was one moment, a few pages long, involving Miers and Herndrix. I won't go into specifics, but that one moment, over halfway through the book got it an extra star. Besides that moment, this was nothing but a long, generic Madlibs book. The writing came across as Unimaginative. It [...]

    12. I've become a big fan of Gina Azzi. Her characters are well-drawn, realistic, and could be people that you actually know (or knew). Her stories are invariably sweet and romantic, stories written about love and all the highs and lows that go with it.Cade Wilkins is on the fast-track to the NFL as he begins his senior year. Lila is parting ways with her three best friends to head to California for a spell while she works out her own problems - her divorced parents and a career choice her father is [...]

    13. Lovely college romanceThis is a book that takes you on a twist of emotions. It is a sports romance book at its core. But this author deals, very successfully with some quite sensitive subjects such as cancer, divorce, attempted rape and normal college angst. These situations were so well written that I could feel each emotion and connect fully with the characters. I loved the camaraderie between all the friends, this reminds me of my college days. This author is new to me, but I will certainly b [...]

    17. This book is an emotion roller coaster ride. Lila is attending a college in California for a medical program and on her way she meets potential pro wide receiver Cade. This book is filled with so much drama that no review will do it justice. This story is filled with strong characters and will not disappoint. Please read this book because it will make your heart happy.

    18. As someone who has recently graduated from University, I really enjoyed the book! The themes were very relatable to me and my experiences, and I felt the book really captured the ideas and real-life problems that a University student faces.
