One thing you can always be certain of when you pick up a book by Jennifer Gracen is that she will bring you a strong, independent, smart lady and that’s why her books always work well for me. Book four in The Harrison’s series does just that, turning the spotlight on Tess—the girl amongst boys, the sister, confidante and cheerleader—and her HEA plan is a little less conventional.

”She didn’t want to spend another Christmas aching and wishing for a child of her own.”

I was curious to see what author Jennifer Gracen had in store for the only female Harrison sibling; the “mother hen” of the group, the one who tries to maintain the peace in the family, and the one who put everyone else and their needs before her own. I love that this story took place largely away from her brothers and overbearing father and gave readers a chance to really get to know her as she worked to make her dreams come true. From acquaintances, to friends, to lovers, to so much m
Tess Harrison needs time away and heading to the family retreat in Aspen is perfect, especially when it will get her closer to her goal of having a family. However, Tess never imagined she'd fall in love with the man she asks to be the father of her baby. Will Tess be able to convince Logan to take a chance, so they can achieve their happy ever after; or will Logan's past keep him from ever taking another chance on love, family and happiness?

Between You and Me is a mix of the “fake relationship” and “relationship with an expiration date” tropes, which generally are ones I don’t enjoy. However, I sorta really liked this story.

Tess Harrison is quickly approaching her 40s. In the past couple of years she’s watched all three of her brothers find love, settle down, and start families - which is what she’s always wanted. But at this point in her life she’s afraid that ship has sailed, and so she’s decided to take matters into her own hand

An awesome read. Love the Harrisons, and to finally get Tess's story, it so worth the wait. As the only daughter in the family, she has always played mother hen, now it is her turn. Tess has one thing on her mind, to have a baby of her own. She doesn't want a husband. She goes out to the family home in Aspen to get this accomplished when she meets up with Logan Carter, the manger of their home. They soon strike up a friendship, when Tess decides he would be the perfect donor. Logan is not into ...more

I'm so glad that I found this series. I've been enjoying each book as its come out. We've been waiting for Tess to find love. From the past books I wondered how her story would go and I'm glad to say that it met with my expectations.

I really enjoyed Between You and Me. I admit that story line isn't anything original but I liked it all the same.

It's not that this book was bad. But it was very, very slow (uneven pacing). I felt like the story execution was weak, which is extra disappointing since I so adored my first Gracen novel last month (Love in Dublin).

I love he Harrison clan and have been looking forward to Tess's story.

Tess, being the only girl of the family and spoiled-in a good way- by her 3 brother, has always been there for her brothers' families. Always attentive, supportive and loving, Tess has inadvertently taken a backseat to her brothers' new lives. Tess realizes her happily ever after might not ever come and her desire to have children is what is most important and she isn't required to have a man in her life to have her heart's de

It’s very easy to slip into a mindset of believing that the wealthy have an easy life. Certainly financial security can ease a lot of worries and burdens, but money isn’t everything. Tess may belong to a very wealthy family, who are, for the most part, happy and secure within themselves. She’s watched her brothers find love and welcomed their loves into her own heart as part of her family. But Tess hasn’t found her happy every after man and the time to fulfill her gr

Tess has it all or so it seems but there is something missing from her life. She decides that the only thing she can do is escape to the family ski lodge in Aspen. There she meets Logan, who due to various circumstances is working as the lodge’s manager for the whole complex.
As the two of them get to know each other, they both realise that they can help each other. As their story unfolds, we as readers get to know them better and see that there’s more to life than money. Money is a commodity th

Between You and Me is the fourth book of a series, but can be read as a standalone just fine. This was my introduction to the Harrison’s and I can’t wait to go back to read the previous books.

Tess Harrison, wealthy, intelligent, and single, heads to Aspen for some soul searching and to work on a project. A project that gets much more hands on when Logan gets involved. Tess is so much fun to read. She’s perceptive and cuts to the chase.

Between You and Me (The Harrisons) by Jennifer Gracen  
Blessings are not found in the possessions we have, but in the people we love and the memories we make. Tess has wealth and family, but is finding it hard to obtain the one thing she wants. To be a mother. Can a rash decision and a brooding loner be the answer to her long waiting dreams? Between You and Me paves a sentimental, yet realistic road to the center of the heart with angsty romance and emotional fulfilling characters.

This was first book I've read by this author and in this series. It was predictable but not in such a way that you didn't want to finish the book. This was a very different story that I enjoyed reading. It was great reading the brothers bonds with their sister despite the tension with the father. I definitely want to finish reading this series.

Between You and Me is my first Harrison Family book. I am now in a must-read state of mind about the rest of the series. I cannot wait to go back and read the others and learn more about their family and relationships.

I was not sure what I was going to find within the story when it starts explaining that Tess is the only daughter in an extremely wealthy family. Would I be able to relate to her? Would her lifestyle be so far out of my realm of life that I wouldn’t be able to understand her? Whil

4.5 star review of Between You and Me (The Harrisons #4) by Jennifer Gracen
Jennifer Gracen is a relatively new author to me and although I have not read the previous books in The Harrison series, I had no trouble diving in to Between You and Me.
Being the only girl, Tess tends to be a tad spoilt, never seeking the limelight, she is content to be in her brother’s shadows. Tess desperately wants a baby and with this in mind, turns to the man who has agreed to make her dream come true. Logan Carter

I stayed up really late to finish this book because I couldn't put it down! This story felt so real and had a natural progression - didn't feel rushed at all. I loved both the hero and the heroine. I love books with large families like the Harrisons. I'm so glad there are more books in the series to devour!

One of my top favorite reads for the year.

Really, really good - that's my take on Jennifer Gracen's Between Me and You. I loved all the characters - the loving, albeit nosey, brothers and the spitfire mom (who is feisty and vocal in spite of her illness). But most of all, I really loved the hero and heroine! They've both been burned by love and have devised very different methods for coping and moving forward. While initially ignoring their physical attraction for one another, proximity and chemistry are tough foes to battle when you do ...more

I’ve been waiting impatiently for Tess’s story (aka “Tesstastic”) since I first met her back in 2015 in MORE THAN YOU KNOW (The Harrisons #1), and met her again in SOMEONE LIKE YOU and ‘TIS THE SEASON (The Harrisons #2 and #3).

But…I saved BETWEEN YOU AND ME (The Harrisons #4) for a long drive to and from Phoenix yesterday, and what I knew would be a highly stressful day, specifically because I was confident Jennifer Gracen would take me away to the world she created. I wasn’t disappoint

Tess, the sister of the three Harrison brothers is still single. She has had some bad luck with relationships. She is the only one of her siblings without children or the prospect for children despite it being a desire very close to her heart. She is used to being an amazing aunt and sister.

Not having read other books by the author before, I didn’t know what to expect before reading Between You and Me, needless to say I was very impressed with how well the author executed the story from start to finish. At the beginning of the book we get to meet Tess Harrison, a workaholic who hasn’t really had good luck in the romance department. When she sees that the rest of her siblings are getting married and having children, Tess becomes

3.5 stars: Between You and Me is the fourth book in the Harrison Family series. It's the first one I have read. This is Tess's story. For the most part, it held up well as a stand alone. The story mainly involves Tess and Logan, so I didn't really feel lost on the family dynamics. The author did a good job of cluing me into who was who and why they did or didn't get along. In the story, Tess is fast approaching forty and has decided to have a baby on her own. She retreats to her family home in A ...more

She decides that she is going to get a sperm donor and have a baby on her own. She travels to the family’s Aspen lodge to ponder her decision and un ...more

This was a really great read. I love how independent Tess is. She's not afraid to stand up to her overbearing father and brothers no matter what her age is. It is amazing to have a such a strong character not being afraid to take on starting a family on their own. Logan is strong in his own way and way sexy. He has a lot of growth in this when it comes to opening up and leaning on someone else other then his mom. This one pulls at the heart strings and is an amazing friend to lover read. I love ...more
