Perfectly Messy Review

Perfectly Messy
Release Date: May 2014

Summary from Goodreads:
Popularity isn't everything it's cracked up to be. Justin Marshall knows this better than most. For the captain of the basketball team, small business owner, and son of Minnesota's next governor, life can get pretty overwhelming. But Justin can handle anything as long as he has Lucy, the girl who fell for the man he's trying to be.

But for Justin and Lucy, finding time together proves challenging. Stolen kisses and whispered promises just aren't enough. That is, until scandalous photos of the couple are leaked to a press intent on creating a juicy scandal during Justin's dad's gubernatorial campaign. And when Lucy becomes fair play for the tabloids and gossip pages, Justin does the only thing he can to protect her: he breaks her heart.

For Lucy, junior year is everything she hoped it would be: new friends, second chances, and a boyfriend she can't stop kissing. That is, until the boy she's pretty sure she loves chooses the life his family wants for him, over her.

Now it's up to Lucy to teach him what it really means to have everything. Because for Justin, being who everyone needs him to be just might cost him the one person he can't live without.

My Review

Perfectly Messy is the follow up novel to Effortless with You. I haven't read Effortless with You, but I think Perfectly Messy can stand alone. (Though now I want to go read how Lucy and Justin fell in love!)
Wow Justin's schedule is CRAZY! Between school, basketball, his painting business, his dad's campaign and everything else, he barely has time for Lucy. Justin is a good guy and tries to please everyone. He is definitively not perfect, but he tries to always be there for Lucy.

Lucy tries to be strong and confident, even when everything is a complete mess. I don't know how she does it! She tries to be the perfect girlfriend and not worry Justin, and just puts more pressure on herself.

Justin and Lucy's new relationship has to deal with lots of outside drama, but in the end can true love prevail?

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 Stars. If you are a fan of YA Romance, add Effortless with You and Perfectly Messy to your Summer Reading list!

Buy Perfectly Messy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or Kobo.
