It’s the year 2069 and even though eighteen-year-old Bianca Butterman is heir to the family biz, she may never see the day her time-craft license becomes official. When a government agent starts nosing around the operation, Butterman Travel, Inc. gets stuck with a full audit—part of a government take-over scheme to shut down all private time travel agencies. Enter former boy band superstar, Tristan Helms, desperate to retrieve a lost item from his past and willing to pay triple fare for a time-trip to get there, and Bianca has to find a way to complete the job and return home before the government gets wind and shuts down the family biz for good.

The other time travel story that I read before this one was My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris(review) and I loved it, in fact I am always fascinated by the idea of time travelling and making changes in past so when I saw the chance to read another book in this genre I jumped to the offer and grabbed it. But then life happened! and I was not able to finish it on time for my tour stop (sorry). You can follow the whole tour here.
This book is set in the future year 2069 where time travel has been commercialized (I so wish that this happens) with only five private companies and other government run facilities. And as we know government today it is same in 2069 which is trying to find a glitch in functioning of the company run by Butterman's- using there very own technology, to shut them down.
Time travel is the luxury that can only be afforded by upper rich society and Tristan Helms is just that, a super rich once a sensational tween band singer now a recovering drug addict teenager. With his career in drains Tristan hangs his last glimmer of hopes for his career on the only song which he wrote last summer and is now determined to get it back.
Bianca Butterman handles all the desk work for her parents company and is only one solo test trip away from receiving her time traveler pilot license. So when Tristan comes with a very enticing offer involving lot of money and a request for her to be his pilot/tour guide to take him ASAP to 2068 New York, Bianca can't just bring herself to say no and convinces her parents too, even though their company is currently under scrutiny by the horrifying govt. Agent Garth.
But when they reach NY 2068 things spiral out of control with rules been broken and the future of her family business in grave DANGER!!! In order to avoid all this she goes back into past (and not near past they reach way back in past), into the era of amazing music which music lovers will love to read about. And this the time where Tristan gets to live his dream and gets Bianca (a control freak) to loosen up.
Both the characters Bianca Butterman and Tristan Helms are very well rounded and relate-able. While Bianca is a control freak, always worrying and thinking about the consequences; Tristan is the Golden Boy with a easy going nature and likes to live in the present. Both the characters complement each other.Bianca loves time traveling, so she is always all about rules as she do not want her company to shut down, here is when Tristan makes her realize the importance of living in the moment once in a while. And Tristan loves singing but has zero confidence in his self post rehab so on this trip to past their surrounding and Bianca help him realize that he has that amazing talent inside him and he can create that magic again.
I really enjoyed this book, it is fast paced with not even a single dull moment and keeps the readers mind amazingly engaged, keeping you guessing what happens next. I can safely say that now I have one more name in my favorite authors list and I am definitely looking forward to what more this author has to offer. :)
Overall all if you like reading time travelling stuff and some amazing music combined with the cat and dog chase between Bianca and Agent Garth and well some science too, sprinkled with smoothly gliding plot.
I give this stupendous book 5 out of 5.
