Blog Tour: Perfectly Messy by Lizzy Charles

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.

  This was such an easy and enjoyable read filled with emotions. Lucy has the perfect boyfriend and a great start to her junior year in high school. However,their relationship is put to the test when Justin tries to be the perfect person he thinks he has to be for everyone,including Lucy. But no one can be perfect 24/7 and the balance of family,friends,school,and girlfriend brings Justin to his knees. Now he must figure out how to put everything into perspective before he looses everything.
  I loved Lucy's strength and determination. She attributes the person she's become to Justin,who helped he learn to be who she really is and stop living in fear. But there comes a time when she must learn to be herself without codependent on someone else.
  Justin is really a sweet guy and an awesome boyfriend.But life's trials has made him think he has to be the perfect son and the perfect person. However in doing this,he drives people away and becomes the person he never wanted to be. After a few people finally point out to him that it's alright to be perfect and with Lucy is where he belongs,he finds his true self.
