Blurb: Sometimes you find perfect where you least expect it...
Libby Potter has just lost the perfect job, the perfect apartment and the perfect boyfriend. Moving back to the same home town that she couldn’t wait to escape when she was younger was definitely not on her todo list. Especially as it means running into the man whose heart she broke when she left.

Pete Bennett can still make Libby’s world stop with just the sound of his voice – even ten years on. Only now, she is the last person in the world that he wants to see.

As everyone else welcomes Libby home with open arms, she realizes she’s missed that special closeness that comes from lifelong friendship. And, as Libby tries to make amends with Pete, she begins to wonder whether she made the right choice in leaving all those years ago.

When an amazing career opportunity gives her the chance to leave again, Libby will have to decide what her version of perfect is… and where she really belongs.

*First, I would like to thank Kim at Bookouture for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: When all your life you have been told that you need to work harder, aim higher and go farther, I guess that going back home might be stressful to say the least. So imagine Libby, who used to be a city girl with a high profile job and the perfect boyfriend, back at her home town with nothing, where everyone knows her and her story with Pete, her exboyfriend or ex love of her life, where there's no professional succes to achieve, where her posh clothes make her feel from a different world.

I liked Libby, but she was a bit too obsessed with what everyone else might think of her. This is why I loved Pete, he didn't have a care in the world about what others might think, he just cared about his loved ones, wanted them to be happy. He was a hard-worker with a child spirit and he was kind and strong. Perfect book boyfriend material. I loved how he tried to get the young care-free Libby back and how he wasn't afraid of making a fool of himself in front of others.

Jenny writes a cute story about the importance of belonging to a place, the importance of having your loved ones close and about what you are willing to sacrifice to have what you really want. Plus the setting of this book is stunning, I could totally picture the endless beaches, she swing on the tree or the porches where life seems to go by slowly. A perfect summer read.

If you don't believe me, you can read Jenny's Guest Post about why Love Me for Me is the perfect beach read and see some photos of the beautiful setting.
