PEX to install a shower valve

I am installing a shower in my basement and I have CPVC water lines running over to the wall the shower valve is to be installed on. My question is this: will it hurt anything if I use PEX lines for my shower or should I use copper? I am very new at this and don't feel confident enough to sweat in copper lines. Any thoughts on this from those of you with experience?
