The Good, the Bad, and the Naughty was a novella and I was disappointed after reading it as I would have loved to read more on the story. The synopsis was interesting and I enjoyed reading the contrasting characters. Where Maryam was hotheaded, Xavier was cool and composed. This story had my kind of dialog and witty comebacks.
I liked to read novellas from time to time so that I can get to finish off a good story in a relatively short amount of time. This one proved to be too good for one. I haven't read a novella so good before.
The story progressed in a good way and it had surprising little turns in it, as well. Considering the anticipated turn around, the result was a little too fast in the making mainly because there it wasn't not implied as such. Overall, it was a fairly good read.
