Be My Lobster – & never let me go

Sarah Ford

“When it comes to finding perfect love, lobsters are the best. They don’t care about gifts (unless they’re homemade) or about grand gestures (lovely little ones will do). With your lobster, it’s about the real stuff – lying on your back to watch clouds, tickling each other until you shriek, devouring a box set in one go. You will know when you find your lobster: they will chuckle at the same jokes, let you share their fries and buckle up to accompany you on this crazy ride called life.”

Luxe review: We all need a little love in this unnerving world. This sweet and simple read is our chosen love story this spring. The perfect gift to buy for the one you love. It’s sure to lift spirits and make them chuckle.
