Enterprise was on the air four years and in that time we never saw anyone ranked Lt. Commander nor was anyone of that rank mentioned. It's perfectly reasonable to assume such rank does not exist in the United Earth Starfleet.
It's also perfectly reasonable to assume it DOES exist. To wit:

- Earth Starfleet is a navy. It may not be THE navy, but it is *a* navy.

- We never saw anybody promoted straight from Lieutenant to Commander, did we?

- Like I said, just because we never happened to see anyone of LCDR rank doesn't mean it didn't exist. The very fact that Reed was considered to be given that rank, counts for something, doesn't it?
