I read this book for my book club. This was the first book that we have read that was based mainly about men. I truly enjoyed the intrigue of each characters life as well as all of their ups and downs. I tried to guess throughout the book who could be the father as well as the mother. I got the mother right, and I had the father narrowed down and in the end there were more twist coming my way. Very, very good book and I would recommend it to anyone who loves to read.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Man this book will keep you reading and can not put it down until you learn the true about each young "VIPS". Outstanding writing by Scott Poulson-Bryant!
I really enjoyed this book! Just trying to keep up with the young men life will keep you reading the next page! I love the way the book start out with "TNT" looking for his father and how the story goes back to how it begin with each young man. You think you know who is the father and the Author take you in another direction! Letting you know what they did and how it came back to haunt them as they all face TNT. Scott Poulson-Bryant wrote a very good book and can not wait until his next book hit the stores!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The V.I.P.s is an engaging character study
In a hot New York, superstar rapper TNT arranges a meeting with Barry Chambers, Leo Bradford, Duke Maynard and Joey Ramirez; he does not tell any of them that he invited the others. Each has been successful since their childhood days when they called themselves the VIPs and had dreams of making it in the Big Apple. Thirty orgasms before turning forty Barry is the CEO of a giant cosmetics company; his ex is a paranoid NBA star, Leo is a magazine mogul and reporter; Duke is a former NFL star who has made it big since leaving professional football on the Internet; and Joey "Ram" Ramirez is "the Latino Calvin Klein" designer.Was this review helpful?

At the suite he took at the Hotel Gansevoort, TNT asks the quartet who amongst the four of them is his SOB father? Each is shocked by the question and begins to look back at their past transgressions.
The V.I.P.s is an engaging character study of four childhood friends whose mortality as they face forty is lucidly in their face by the rapper challenging them. The key cast is fully developed and each seems genuine with the exception of the vile villain. Although some of the relationships and decision making starting in 1983 between the parents generation of the V.I.P.s seem unlikely, this is a well written insightful tale as readers, the quartet and the rapper ask who his daddy is.
