Antonyo Ian Demonté Simms treats women as casually as most people treat their socks, changing them frequently. With the help of his aunt LaTrece, his mother's irresponsible twin sister, Antonyo learns how to use his good looks and charisma to win the hearts—and treasures—of a vast array of female companions. Each of these women thinks that she may just be the one who can turn this hot hunk into a husband, but Antonyo has no intention of changing his womanizing ways.
The only woman Antonyo can't get over on is his no-nonsense mother, LaTrina. She struggles every day, trying to instill strong morals in her son and turn him into a good man, in spite of the example set by his deadbeat father.
LaTrina gives her life to Christ, and as she grows in her relationship with God, she does all in her power to convince Antonyo to do the same thing. Antonyo is impressed with the new person his mother is becoming, but he's certain that his life is fine exactly the way it is. 
Can a mother's love and God's all-encompassing power, grace, and mercy change a young man from sinner to saint before Satan drags him into the pits of hell?
