From Publishers Weekly
For those even broadly familiar with the details of rapper, actor and now author Dogg's troubled past, this book will read as a thinly-veiled memoir. Dogg's teen protagonist, Ulysses Jeffries, lives in the drug-infested Los Angeles neighborhood of Long Beach in the early 1990s, along with his younger brother Bing and their no-nonsense but loving single mother. When she gets religion, the two turn for attention to a local thug named Buddha, who takes Ulysses in as a kind of protégé. "I didn't have a father or a big brother," he says, "so in a strange way, Buddha became both for me. He had the flyest crib in the neighborhood." Soon his mentor gets him selling drugs on the streets, a trade for which Ulysses has quite a gift. The story is rife with cliché: Ulysses learns the price of gangster life the hard way; begins writing lyrics for raps and escapes a tragic fate through the transformative power of music. Dogg is part storyteller, part preacher, and his innate charm and streetwise wit go a long way in compensating for the otherwise pat plot and stale prose of this debut, the first of an announced trilogy.

Love Don't Live Here No More reads like a memoir. It was a short, interesting read. I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in growing up in the lifestyle that the author speaks of in this biographical novel.
Fans of Snoop Dogg will likely find fault with the fact I only gave this four stars. I felt that for it to receive a full five stars it should have been a bit longer/detailed or sold to the teen audience. It was not quite clear what age group the authors were reaching for.
I am looking forward to reading more by Snoop Dogg& David E. Talbert.
