In The Hearts of Men, a reformed player, a workaholic trying to overcome his past, and a faithful husband diagnosed with lung cancer all struggle to be the men they hope to be. But life and human frailty have a way of throwing stumbling blocks before the best of intentions.

Straight To The Hearts of Women

This is a feel good, get your mind to thinking, laughing, crying , and all of the emotions in between book. I loved the naration. I am from Philadelphia, and many of the scenarios in this novel hit very near close to home. I was very overcome with emotion on during this novel. Mr. Hunter, You knocked this one out of the ball park... Thank you!!! I really needed this. I think women everywhere will love this novel.

I'm glad that I listened to this book

Would you try another book from Travis Hunter and/or Ezra Knight?

Yes, I would.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I kind of expected it. It gave the book closure, but it was a little sad.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Yes, I would

Any additional comments?

I was disappointed the first few minutes of listening to the book, but quickly changed my mind. It isn't an action-packed page turner, but enough is going on to keep you interested. A few of the conversations in the book made me think. That is what I appreciated about this story. This book was very well-written and had a purpose.

An audible must have!

This book was excellent. The story line kept me looking forward to my daily listen as I drove to work. The characters seem to come to life as the narrator told the tale. Excellent listen.

HE IS BY FAR THE THE BEST, HE HAS AN AMAZING, INTRIGUING VOICE THAT DRAWS YOU IN EVERYTIME. WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE AS ALWAYS.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I REALLY LIKE TO RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PRODIGY AND NINA AND HOW QUICKLY THAT GREW.
