Abby Chase, an aspiring law student does not stand for participating in a class. She enjoys taking finals and using those to secure her grade rather than trying to answer questions and discuss different topics in class. Abby has always tried to find classes that will in the end have her studying hard for the final and trying to secure a good grade in the class instead of being in a class that focuses on her talking in front of others. However, not realizing that her Secured Transactions class with her gorgeous and handsome Professor Medina altercates all of her views on how things should be graded and weighted, she becomes determined after the first day of class to try to switch out of it.

Michael F. Medina who had worked at a law firm before has now become a professor at Abby’s law school and is her professor for her Secured Transactions class. The moment that he lays his eyes on her, he becomes intrigued and very much wants to get to know her out of classroom boundaries. However, when he finds out that she wants to drop his class because of how he worded the grading scale on the syllabus, he becomes hurt that this beautiful girl is repulsed by the thought of him and his class.

However, this misunderstanding is solved and both Abby and Medina try to get to know each other and enjoy each other’s companies. However, due to the fact that Abby thinks he’s married and him being her professor, they try to just be friends and not overstep those boundaries. It is clear though that it is difficult throughout this story for them to fight their attraction for each other. Their attraction takes them to a place they never thought possible.

A Secured Transactions was a decent read; however, I didn’t like how slowly their relationship progressed throughout the story. Having both the point of views of both Abby and Medina was nice; however, it was a bit unnecessary since they both turned out to be the same. By the middle of the book I was a little tired of the back and forth between changing points of views. I mean I don’t mind the different views; however, this story doesn’t continue off with the other person’s points of view and instead starts all over in that same scene, just with the other character’s point of view. Also, their interactions were a bit slow, I felt like they didn’t really learn too much about each other until they were sitting down in the car and talking about 3/4 of the way of the book. It was a frustrating read because they kept trying to fight their attraction for each other no matter how much they tried to deny it. It wasn’t a terrible read or anything, just how slow the plot moved was a little irritating. I however did not see that ending coming; I didn’t expect what happened to have happened. It was a bit shocking because it came very unexpectedly; however, it made me excited to see what was in store for the next book. All in all, I still enjoyed the book and can’t wait to see what happens next.
