Sexy surfers. Epic parties. Wild nights.
Welcome to my senior year of college.
At least, this is what I imagine when I accept a semester-long medical internship in LA, California.
But reality trumps imagination when I meet him.
Cade Wilkins, Astor University football god and projected NFL draft pick. With thundercloud eyes, a teasing smirk, and a ripped body, Cade is my game changer.
I fall for him faster than he can score a touchdown.
Except our happily-ever-after is fumbled.
One tackle ends him.
One party destroys me.
Broken promises. Ugly truths. Ruined futures.
Welcome to my senior year of college.
The real version.
The College Pact Series (originally published under The Senior Semester Series) has been re-edited and revamped with new content and a fresh look. All books in this series can be read as standalones.

Springing to my feet, I square my shoulders, and meet his gaze head-on. Dark gray storm clouds swirl, uncontrollable. He bites down on the corner of his mouth, kicking one foot up behind him, the sole of his shoe banging against the door.
Standing my ground, I hold his tortured perusal, unwilling to blink first.
âLila.â He rasps, his eyelids hooded.
âWhyâd you run?â
âI had to go to the bathroom.â
The left side of his mouth twitches and he pushes off the bathroom door, another step closer to me. âNo, you didnât. You couldnât get out of the room fast enough.â
âIt was shitty of me to put you on the spot like that in front of all those people.â
âI told you I donât want aâ¦thing.â I gesture between us.
âI know. But this thing,â he steps closer, crowding me, âitâs not going anywhere.â
I shuffle back until Iâm pressed against the bathroom wall opposite the door. This damn bathroom is suffocating, overflowing with Cadeâs presence. Cadeâs forearm settles next to my head, boxing me in. His mouth is only inches from mine, his tongue darting out to swipe across his bottom lip.
I groan, my body involuntarily arching toward his. Jesus, what is wrong with me? And what is he thinking? Who could have a proper argument with all of theseâ¦ distractions?
âI shouldnât have done that, blown up your spot, tossed all that attention your way. But babe,â he drops his forehead to mine, his breath fluttering over my lips like an invitation I desperately want to RSVP yes to, âI hated that so many people threw shade your way. Every comment I heard pissed me off so much more because it was said about you, not me. And I wonât let any of these people talk shit about you.â He jabs a finger toward the party transpiring outside of the smallest bathroom that ever existed. âAnd Iâm not going to apologize for looking out for you.â
âCade,â Iâm breathless, quivering for him to stop talking and start touching. But I need to be strong, resolute â¦ honest. âIâm leaving in four months. I donât do ââ
âSerious, I know. Me either.â His nose brushes against mine and I shiver. Shiver! âBut give me a shot, Lila. Iâm not going to wifey you. Just let me take you out, kick it with me, come to my games and rock my number, give it a chance.â
âWhat if itâs too much?â
His fingers close around my hips, tugging until my belly button is flush against his jeans. Jesus. Need pools within me and as his fingertips grip harder, his body grinding against mine, I whimper, desperate for relief from the wildfire consuming me.
âWhat if itâs too damn good?â he angles his head lower, his bottom lip ghosting mine. âLet me light you up until we burn out. Babe, Iâm not feeding you lines. I want you, Lovely.â
