Amazon | Goodreads

The Hating Game meets Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by way of Morgan Matson in this unforgettable romantic comedy about two rival overachievers whose relationship completely transforms over the course of twenty-four hours.

Today, she hates him.

It’s the last day of senior year. Rowan Roth and Neil McNair have been bitter rivals for all of high school, clashing on test scores, student council elections, and even gym class pull-up contests. While Rowan, who secretly wants to write romance novels, is anxious about the future, she’d love to beat her infuriating nemesis one last time.

Tonight, she puts up with him.

When Neil is named valedictorian, Rowan has only one chance at victory: Howl, a senior class game that takes them all over Seattle, a farewell tour of the city she loves. But after learning a group of seniors is out to get them, she and Neil reluctantly decide to team up until they’re the last players left—and then they’ll destroy each other.

As Rowan spends more time with Neil, she realizes he’s much more than the awkward linguistics nerd she’s sparred with for the past four years. And, perhaps, this boy she claims to despise might actually be the boy of her dreams.

Tomorrow…maybe she’s already fallen for him.

review

[I received a digital arc from Netgalley for an honest review]

Today Tonight Tomorrow was a really fun enemies to lovers YA contemporary romance between two classmates, Rowan and Neil, who have spent their entire high school experience trying to out do each other. Rowan is giving one last chance to outshine Neil even if they have to team up to do it but the more time she spends with him the more she realizes maybe her feelings towards him aren’t as negative as she thought.

Come on. I’m giving you an olive branch here.”
“If I can’t smack you with it, what’s the point?”

This book took one of my favorite romance genres , enemies to lovers, and executed it perfectly in a YA setting. Our main characters are fantastic. Rowan is determined but a little bit of a mess but in the way all seniors end up being by the end of the year, making her so relatable. Neil was a complete sweetheart and I could perfectly picture his shy smiles and embarrassed blushes against all his freckles. Their banter back and forth made me chuckle, and their slow burn romance gave me butterflies. Ahh first loves {{sigh}}

I must be obsessed with Neil McNair because even with him gone, he’s all I can think about.

Today Tonight Tomorrow is a well-rounded YA romance. The format of the book having text messages, fliers, and even school reports made the reading fun. Also, with Rowan being in love with romance novels and both her and Neil being Jewish, the story is really sex positive and has wonderful Jewish representation.
