about this book

Tall, dark, and handsome, Prodigy Banks goes from being a ladies' man with a shady past to being a man any mother would be proud to call her son. But when his past life of gratuitous sex and violence threatens his newfound respectability, decisions need to be made. Will he make a man's choice or a boy's guess?

Bernard Charles is haunted by childhood memories of abandonment and poverty. His workaholic ways and desire to provide his family with all the material things he didn't have frustrate his wife, Diane, and leave her vulnerable to another man's advances. After her betrayal, will Bernard move on or move out?

Winston "Poppa Doc" Fuller has a fix for what's ailing the younger generation. His wisdom brings healing to everyone he touches, yet he hasn't been able to reach his own thirty-three-year-old son. After Poppa Doc is stricken with lung cancer, his only wish is that his son will become a man before Poppa Doc leaves this earth.

Newcomer Travis Hunter has crafted a tale that is funny, sexy, and touching about three men at very different points in their lives and what it truly means to have the heart of a man.

"Travis Hunter takes us into the lives, the thoughts, and straight into the hearts of men. His work reflects the voice that is often missing; the voice of a brother who loves, listens, and tells his own truth."
—Bertice Berry, author of The Haunting of Hip-Hop

"A book I'll share with my sons for years to come."
—Carl Weber, author of the Blackboard bestseller Lookin' for Luv
