Folie à Deux

Posted by A Drop of Romeo at 7:00 PM
Rayleigh Cavenaugh and Alex Laymen dated for almost their entire senior year in high school, but it didn't end too well for them. Seven years later, Rayleigh starts working for the same magazine as Alex, and white she's reluctant to be anything more than colleagues, or at best, friends, Alex isn't about to let her slip through his fingers again.

Marta Thinks: Folie à Deux. In other words, madness shared by two people. That makes sense; after all, being in love is the same as
being crazy. But at the moment, it’s unfortunately more like Folie à Un. Because, despite Alex's best efforts, Rayleigh isn't budging into the romance section of their relationship (for now).

But she must – and she will, because it’s easy to tell that Alex and Rayleigh are meant to be. You can tell this from their current interactions, and also from the flashbacks that have been provided. I’m not a big fan of flashbacks, but it worked well here, and didn’t detract from the story at all.

Also, their relationship comes across so well. They’re really likeable and well-rounded characters. You can tell that you’d definitely get along with them if they were real.

Well-written stories are so hard to come by, funny ones even less (and this is definitely funny!), so it’d be a shame to miss out on this exciting romance.
