Drew is a hero. He put his playboy ways to the side to be the friend and family that Alex truly needed while in college. Of course, he wanted more. Not always a relationship but a good time. Yet, he was strong enough to hold off on those urges and just be there for Alex. He was lucky to have a family that was strong and able to help him stay strong and still encourage him to show his true feelings.
Alex had a rough time during college. She lost her entire family and was truly alone in the world. She was attractive and the guys all wanted her, but they were not looking for friendships. When she met Drew I loved how she told him off before he even got a chance to get a whole sentence off. I am so glad that she held strong and made him work for her friendship. The saying that nothing good in life comes easy was definitely true for Alex and Drew’s relationship.
This is a sweet story. There were surprises along with some predictability. I recommend checking out this story if you are looking for a romance that starts as friends and develops into so much more.
I thought the writing was amazing, I was hooked. I loved Alex.could not put it down.
I really loved Drews family. And Sean! God I loved Sean. We need a Sean book!
But my issue... Drew.
He honestly didn't deserve her.
I thought she could do a million times better.
He gave me hope at times.. Then crushes it under his sexy foot.
Damn the man.
I think I need a book about Sean..

It started at a college party and in a series of time jumps the story progresses into a misconnected relationship. Feisty redhead meets fraternity party boy in a real opposites attract love affair that will leave you breathless. Alex and Drew's story had me laughing at times and crying at others as though I were living inside the novel.
I would highly recommend this novel to anyone seeking a Notebook worthy feel good romance.
Alex (Red) and Drew are friends. They don’t start out that way of course, but after one of the funniest but probably most awkward first meetings in existence, they find common ground and their friendship is off to the races.
Now this book, like a lot of books in the college arena starts off in a very typical way, but this friends to lover’s story isn’t typical past that in the slightest.
Where Drew appears shallow on the surface, deep inside he’s anything but, and I especially enjoyed getting to see that through not only the flashback chapters shown through his eyes, but also in the here and now moments. He’s funny, sweet, and protective. Basically all the things you’d want him to be, or at least I wanted him to be, he was. He is capable of loving pretty strongly, but until he meets and becomes a part of this friendship with Alex (his Red), you don’t really see it. He’s the typical college playboy and for him up until that point, it’s always been the way he wants it to be.
Alex changes all of that for him and even though you learn quite early on that she’s had a lot of tragedy in her life and appears quite fragile, she’s not. She’s something more under the surface too. She’s just the right blend of feisty firecracker and soft hearted emotional sweetheart. She gives back as good as she gets from Drew and I enjoyed her character immensely. She wasn’t like anyone else around her. It was also nice to see how after she begins the friendship with Drew, she seems to become more open than she was in the start.
These characters played very well off one another, balancing each other out in many ways and it was a beautiful thing to witness.
The progression of their relationship, how long it takes for them to admit how they feel, I think it was very well done. They realize what is happening between them at different periods. Drew seeming to know before her, but keeping it quiet because no matter how he feels, he wants to be what she needs him to be and up until the point where a light bulb seems to go off over Alex’s head, that’s strictly friends.
The conflict that one experiences when they one day wake up and see their best friend in a different light. Wanting to speak up, admit how they feel since they’ve never had a problem being honest before, but not wanting to ruin the good thing they have going, it was all very real to me. Having a male best friend, a lot of the ways Alex would react, I understood and could sympathize with, but the moment when the truth is admitted finally, feelings are put on the table, was worth all of the back and forth struggle that took place.
I couldn’t review this book without mentioning Drew’s family. His mother and the words she spoke to him and that his father carried on after she was gone, they touched my heart. The feels for this family were off the charts in terms of the way they looked at true love. And how they seemed to just know at various points over the years (his mom first and then his father) that Alex was the one for him (and that he was the one for her) was fantastic. Having the family play the part they did here definitely made me understand Drew even more.
I really enjoyed this story and in the end, it gave me everything I could want in a friends to lover’s story, in a romance, and just in a book period. I was emotionally involved while reading, I was connected throughout to the characters (even when I didn’t exactly agree with all their choices), and I enjoyed the way it all came together in terms of pacing and flow. I’m still having a hard time believing with the way this book was written that it’s a debut novel.
If you’re a fan of the stories that don’t come easy, but that end beautifully, fans of stories where two friends fall in love, or just a fan of romance in general (with the right amount of humor laced throughout), I think you’ll enjoy this. I know I did and I can’t wait for what the author has planned for us next.
Somewhere in Between is the story of two best friends- Drew and Alex. Having met at a failed pick up line and a wasted beer later, these two form a long lasting friendship that grows and develops with time into something more.
Aside from the best friend to lovers romance there were so many more things I loved about this book. Harris did an exceptional job writing these characters! Each character lifted of the pages and came to life in my imagination. They showed strength, devotion, and love. They made me laugh out loud, cry crocodile tears, and giggle with joy. This is where I tell Harris to please give me more…. preferably Sean + Wiley… hint hint.
Agh… the family feels this story gave me! I absolutely loved that Alex not only gained Drew, but this exceptional family of Drew’s. Their tight knit bond and devotion to one another was sweet, endearing and one that had me turning pages. I loved hearing the advice of Papa Jack and Emma.
I also loved the way this story was written flipping back from then to now. Now, I know a lot of you are saying “Whoa, I hate those type books!” But it was not confusing in the least. I think it was an amazing choice by Harris to touch back to important memories between Drew and Alex from the beginning as their relationship began to evolve in the present. It definitely connected me more with Drew than if we would have read it straight through as they grew up from college to adult life.
I could continue to tell you all the amazing things that I loved about Somewhere in Between (cause there is a lot), however, I suggest you read it. Fall in love Drew and Alex as these two best friends fall in love with each other. I know I did.
There is something to be said for two people that love each other so fiercely that they are willing to sacrifice their true feelings for the well being of the other person.
This is what both Drew and Alex did for years.
She was grieving and completely alone when Drew came into her life, becoming not only her best friend but also her only family. Drew was a having fun through his college years and not taking girls seriously, until the one girl who would not succumb to his charm appeared in his life.
There were there for each other through the toughest moments human beings could go through, they held each other up when things were falling apart, but most importantly. they loved and respected each other never crossing the friendship boundary. Until one day...
I'm the kind of person that doesn't particularly like when a story changes from present to past throughout the book, it drives me crazy and confuses me at times. But the way Ms. Harris wrote this story (even though it takes the reader from present to past and back again) is so subtle and it helps the reader understand so much of the characters' history that I was captivated by the details she was providing.
The author did a great job developing the characters, even the secondary ones were a very important part of the storyline. The fluidity of her tale is the one thing that had me reading this book in one seating not even realizing I've spent a couple of hours just reading away.
If you're a fan of friends to lovers stories, this is definitely the book for you.
I leave you with my favorite quote from this book....
"When you fall in love, never stop fighting to be the man that she deserves. Always remember that you, my friend, don’t deserve her.”
