This book is a fast read.
Boss Lady
I realized after reading the first 3 pages, which describes in much detail the main character having sex with his girlfriend, that this book wasn't going to fly.
Hip Teacher
I read the story in a few hours and couldn't put the book down.

I would first like to start by saying, "What Happened." I loved all three of Noire's other books however this book was a total blur. It had a decent plot, no rising action, a predictable climax, and a twisted ending. It would have been wise to concentrate on one or two characters. However, this books was maybe 300 pages but had like 20 different characters. Prince is the only artist that I know who has the ability to drop new material every three monthes. Word to the wise Noire, "All money ain't good money." In other words, putting 50 Cent's name on a book doesn't mean anything to an intellect. 50 cent can afford to flop he's rich, however you are not established yet.

Baby Brother is the story of the Davis brothers, seven boys from New York who have all had their run-ins with the law with the exception of the youngest--Baby Brother. Since the boys' parents died when they were young, they made a promise to their mother that they would take care of Baby Brother and teach him right from wrong. Baby Brother, also known as Zabu, has taken their lessons to heart and made something of himself. He's leaving for California in two days with a full scholarship to Stanford and has plans to become a surgeon.

The book begins with Zabu struggling to say goodbye to his girlfriend Sari, a half-Puerto Rican half-black girl who he's been with for the past three years. Zabu knows it's going to be hard to leave Sari, but believes that going to Stanford and making a life for himself outside his brothers' world of drugs and corruption will give them a chance at a real future together. Sadly, on their last night together Sari is brutally gunned down in the streets of New York and Zabu is nailed for the crime. When an unsympathetic judge refuses to hear his brothers' pleas about Zabu's bright future, and instead sends Baby Brother to Rikers, the rest of the Davis boys band together to get their little brother out of jail and to find the real culprits behind Sari's murder.

Baby Brother was less than two hundred pages and was pretty quick-paced and exciting. The Davis Brothers have long been on the wrong side of the law, but when the only innocent one among them is punished for a crime he didn't commit, they use their street connections and hard backgrounds to figure out a way to get him out of this mess.

Ok, I understand that this is a NOVELLA and not a NOVEL and Novella's are shorter than novels but, Garbage is Garbage no matter what size bag its in! I'am a Noire fan really I'am, I've read everything else she has written and loved it all! But this Noire and 50 collabo? Oh Hell Nall! I don't know if it's because of 50 influence but I din't care for this book at all! If this is how G Unit books will be I'll pass great authors or not I Want My Money Back Damnit! Noire, I'm looking foward to "Thong on Fire" and all the author books from you but please leave G Unit books alone! PLEASE!

It was truly not one of her best books. G-Spot was the best and Candy Licker was just a carbon copy. But I know she got skills so keep doing your thing

In Baby Brother by 50 Cent and Noire, Antwan "Priest", Malik, Raheem, Kadir, Farad, and Finesse make up six of the seven Davis brother clan, who are on a mission to protect the youngest, Zabu a.k.a Baby Brother. This was a promise made to their mother on her death bed.

Each brother chose a different path of life to travel. The eldest brother, Priest, was formerly ` Monster', a downright gritty thug who pimped, killed, gang banged, and hustled until a prison bid set him on the path to being spiritually saved. Malik was one of NYPD's finest, attempting to manage a life of upholding the law whilst being enmeshed with his law-breaking twin brothers, Farad and Finesse. The twins were drug lords who terrorized the streets of New York ruthlessly. Kadir followed in his father's footsteps and took to the game of gambling. Farad was a correction's officer at Riker's Island trying to stay on the straight and narrow with his nine to five. Baby Brother, the pride and joy of the family, was their hope for a better future. He obtained a scholarship to attend Stanford University, had never been in trouble with the law and the brothers made sure to protect him from the lessons the streets had taught them so harshly.

The novella starts with Baby Brother having a little fun with his Puerto Rican girlfriend, Sari. The two wanted to enjoy each other because it would be two days before Baby Brother would board the airplane for California to attend Stanford. Winding down their day, Sari was getting into Baby Brother's car when she was shot. Attempting to capture the shooter, Baby Brother picked up the gun that was dropped by the assailant and took chase but was met by headlights and gun barrels as the cops caught him.

Okay...I get this is a novella and not a full length novel, but there was a lot of telling and not doing in this book. Mainly, it was just one big narrative. I've read three of Noire's books G-spot being the best since the other two were basically G-spot again just different characters. I bought this book when it first came out with another of her books which i believe was the third one from her at the time. When i finished reading that book and saw i just bought and read the same book 3 times there was no way i was getting trapped into reading baby brother. well here it is a couple years later and i've run out of stuff to read so what do i do, pick up baby brother and for what?

I really hate how Priest let the devil have him by making the monster come back out. It was a stupid turn about for him and so elementary and predictable were not only his actions, but the entire book. It was like saying God doesn't exist. Why would brutally kill 2 old people who had nothing to do with his brother's death. Didn't he know that God said 'vengenace shall be mine'? The book had it's entertaining parts which is the only reason i gave three and not the two stars i wanted to.

I don't know what to say other than WTF???
