This was originally posted on my blog: GATEWAY TO DIFFERENT WORLD 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.

Welcome to Butterman Time Travel - where you can travel to the past to your dream destination! I loved this book, I literally could NOT put it down :) Biana Butterman is the strong yet flawed main character who works with her parents at the family business Butterman Time Travel. But Bianca wants to take it to the next level - she wants to make it the best. And when she meets Tristan, the newly clean addict rock star ... woohoo! Talk about sexual tension! I loved reading about their blossoming feelings for each other, and cannot wait to see where it goes in the next book - hoping it lasts through time! Tristan shows up just as Bianca is attempting to firm up her Induction Day by proving to her parents that she can handle being a solo guide. But of course if everything went perfectly there would be no book. Together Tristan and Bianca travel back one year to 2068 and then all the way back to Woodstock in 1969, but somehow their actions in the past alter time and they don't know what will happen. This is just a riveting story that will keep you breathless and wanting more and more. I know the second book will be just as good! And hopefully we will find out more about Tristan as well - and will Bianca get to go to her dream destination - The Titanic? One amazing read, I have to give this one 5 stars, although I would give more if I could! One of the best books I have ever read :) I received a complimentary ebook to read for this review.

Kept me reading until the very end.  Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I read every free chance I had. Bianca Butterman can’t wait to get her license to run the time-craft of Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. This is her family’s legacy. Her future. Her past. Her everything. She is a by-the-book operator until she meets Tristan Helms, a former boy band star who wants to go back to help salvage his career. From the first time they meet, you know they are meant to take this journey together. It isn’t obvious for what reason and how their relationship will end, but they are meant to be together for this one trip. And, oh, what a trip it is! Bianca and Tristan were great together. I liked how they kept each other in check. I loved that he picked Woodstock. And I loved their reactions and interactions while there. Their time in New York City and in Alaska were fun and exciting. The explanations regarding how time travel works and the various aspects, effects, affects, etc. was well done. I understood it even though I’m not a sci fi geek (no offense to anyone!). It also made me want to go research time travel. That made an impact on me. I wanted to think more about the subject of the book after I was done reading it. It made me consider the possibility of time travel. That was cool. There was a lot going on in this book but it didn’t overwhelm me. It kept me reading until the very end. I can’t wait for the next book! Would I recommend it: I would recommend this book to any YA/NA sci fi fan! Will I read it again: That depends on how soon book two, Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. Induction Day is released. (I can’t wait.) (I received a copy of this book for review purposes.)

I would love to book a trip with Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc.! How could you not after reading the blurb? As far as synopses go it has to be one of the better ones that I have read. I was immediately contemplating which direction I would pick. Would I book a trip to the past or would I pick the future? Washed up pop star, Tristan Helms, picks the past and gets way more than he bargained for when he hires “soon to be licensed” Bianca Butterman to escort him on his first ever time travel journey. I will be honest I didn’t care for Tristan. I have a very low sympathy level for people that ruin their life with drugs, have every opportunity to fix it, and still can’t develop the backbone to change or the common sense to recognize when they need more help. Tristan pushed every dislike button I have especially if you add in the fact that he is booking a trip to make his life better but still considers “recreational” or “casual” drug use okay. He does redeem himself a little and I begin to develop a small sense of hope that he might not be such an ass in the next book. To balance out the dislike I had for Tristan we have Bianca. I loved her. She is spunky, smart, and determined. However, I hated that she was easily manipulated by Tristan’s pretty face. While I agree that she needed to loosen up a little I do feel that she was too willing to compromise some of her standards when faced with Tristan’s manipulation. The adventure that Bianca and Tristan goes on is an interesting one and one that I never would have guessed.   I loved the musical references (Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, etc.) and the effortless way that music is weaved into the storyline is fantastic. As the story develops you see that there is a lot happening as the past, present, and future intertwine in hopes of ensuring that Butterman (Time) Travel continues to exist in all time periods. Summary: There were parts I loved, parts I liked, and parts that I hated. Which to me are all signs that I became invested in the story.  The book is marked as young adult/new adult on Amazon. Personally I would say older young adult/new adult due to the drug use and age of the main characters. Overall, I believe that this is a great start to a time travel, adventure, romance series that I  am anxious to discover what will happen next in. Coming Soon: Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. Part II – Induction Day. *I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

What an absolutely fantastic book! I fell in love with Bianca (love that name so much!) and Tristan right away. Their personalities jump off the page and envelope you from the first chapter. Each time I thought I had them figured out, the curtain was lifted a little more, and I learned something new. I loved seeing Manhattan of the future and trying to guess where each bend in the story would take me. I haven't read many time travel books, but I've been a fan of Star Trek my whole life, so that gave me a background in what happens when you play with time. I thought the explanations of how time travel worked were just descriptive enough to make it seem plausible, yet vague enough to not overwhelm me. All in all, it was a splendid ride. For those reviewers that claimed there was too much drug use in this book, stop clutching your pearls and think logically. Most of the drug use was appropriate for the TIME this novel takes place in. I didn't find any of it gratuitous or shocking, and I thought PK Hrezo's descriptions were lovely and real. Nothing felt out of place. Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. bended my mind quite a bit, and I'm looking forward to reading about Bianca's Induction Day next!

Time travel is a very real form of transportation in 2069. It’s also very regulated by the Department of Transportation. Bianca Butterman and her family have been running Butterman Travel, Inc. ever since her great relative discovered and patented the technology. For Bianca, there is nothing more important to her than getting her time travel pilot’s license at her Induction Day, a great rite of passage for all Buttermans. She only has a few more tasks that she needs to complete in order to secure her pilot’s license. Those few obstacles quickly vanish when former boy band rocker, Tristan Helms wants a trip to retrieve something he has lost. He is willing to pay big money to get Bianca her license so that she can escort him back to 2068. Unfortunately, he wants to travel while the Buttermans are under observation by the Department of Transportation, which means that any errors that Bianca makes on her first solo time travel could be seen by their evaluator. If they don’t pass their assessment they could lose the family business.  Bianca is willing to do whatever it takes help her family keep their business open, but the devotion may cost her in more ways than one because you never can be sure what will happen when you start messing with timelines.  Butterman (Time) Travel, Inc. is a fun read. I bonded right away with quirky, goth girl Bianca and appreciated her being a stickler for the rules. Tristen Helms came off as the typical rocker boy, who was too cool for everything and everyone, until you got to really know the man behind the boy band. The combination of a straight edge girl and trouble making rock star made for great entertainment as Tristan was able to convince Bianca to let her hair down a little, even though each of those instances resulted in big trouble for the duo.  In addition to writing an action packed adventure that traverses a hundred years, author PK Hrezo deserves a standing ovation for her descriptions of music and the real Woodstock. Where others may have put a shiny coat of paint on the mythic event that was Woodstock, Hrezo describes all of the mud, garbage, nudity, peace, love, drugs and rock-and-roll with honesty that I feel only a true music lover could do. While the masses swayed to the rhythm of Joni Mitchell in the book it felt like I was in the midst of the action.  The attention to detail in the music scenes truly brought this book to life. If you can’t tell by now, I really enjoyed this book and feel that I need to provide just a little more praise. Anytime you take on time travel you always open up a huge can of warms as you have to deal with altered realities, parallel universes and any number of butterfly effects. Hrezo stepped up to the challenge and clearly and concisely explained all of the problems and how the characters were able to avoid any repercussions from their entanglements. This feat alone was really impressive.  So, to keep it short and sweet, if you are fan of time travel books, love music or ever wished you could have gone to Woodstock then this book is for you.  (This book was provided to Compulsion Reads for review by the author.)

I don't think I have read any books lately on time travel, so I was excited to get this book to review.  Butterman Travels is a family owned time travels business that happens to be under audit when Bianca is about to take her first "solo" guide trip.  She is looking forward to being a full time guide and waiting to take her induction trip, when Tristen walks into their lives. The whole idea of time travel is fascinating to me.  The idea of being able to pay for and do it like a vacation is even more fascinating to me.  Tristen is a superstar musician who is trying to find his place in the world after taking some wrong turns in his life.  He thinks that the time travel will solve all his problems and help him in his future.   While the story evolves we find out there may be more to Tristen and Bianca meeting than meets the eye.  It is such an interesting and exciting read.  I couldn't put the book down.   I am excited to see what the next adventure brings in this series, and to see how things all tie together. I know I have said this before, and it probably bothers some, but I really do not like it when an author feels the need to drop the f-bomb all the time.  Having said that I really liked this book, but because of the language I didn't LOVE this book.   I gave it a 4 star rating, but it totally could have been five for me if there wasn't so much language in it.

P.K. Hrezo blew me away with her story, Butterman Time Travel Inc. There were so many Temporal Paradoxes that I lost track of where I was in time and space...and I LOVE that! P.K.'s mind should be studied by scientists! The action starts quickly in this New Adult Sci-Fy adventure, when we discover that the DOT is trying to get their tentacles into the whole of the time-travel industry,and is currently targeting Butterman Time travel. As they make their way back in time for what may be their last time, things go horribly wrong, until they figure out that they were SUPPOSED to go back....it had all happened before. Will they be able to save their company? Will one more trip back in time fix their problems...or make them worse? You will have to read this awesome story to find out for sure! I definitely recommend it!  I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. J.T. Lewis
