One of my favorite parts of The Billionaire In Her Bed is the crazy cast of supporting characters who share the Brooklyn apartment building with the hero and heroine, real estate mogul Eli Ward and aspiring graphic novelist Brooke Worthington. There’s the Feinbergs, the elderly couple who live on the first floor:
Single mom Charise and her young son:
And partners David and Chris, a concert pianist and a ballet dancer:
Okay, that last one’s not a gif. That’s the real-life David and Chris, two of my favorite people in the entire world. They’re really a pianist (David, on the right) and a ballet dancer (Chris, on the left), and the book’s dedicated to them. Aren’t they the cutest?
Anyway, the other night I was catching up on one of my favorite TV shows, Younger(based on the awesome book of the same name by Pamela Redmond Satran), and the ensemble cast made me think of the BIHBcrew. It reminded me why #IShip that show so hard.
There’s Broadway star Sutton Foster. (Did I mention that #IShip Broadway too? But that’s a subject for another blog post.) She plays Liza Miller, a 40-something divorced mom who pretends to be 20-something so she can start a career in publishing and pay her mounting bills:
She’s caught in a love triangle between this guy, smoking hot tattoo artist Josh:
And this guy, her boss, Charles:
At first, the only person who knows her secret is her best friend and roommate, free-spirited artist Maggie:
Eventually, her co-worker Kelsey finds out, and she’s not happy:
Miriam, Liza’s immediate supervisor at the publishing house, is still in the dark:
As is Lauren, Kelsey’s off-beat bestie who also befriends Liza:
Exhausted yet? Or are you still with me?
I’m telling you, this show is amazeballs. If you like ensemble comedies with a dash of drama, too, check it out on TVLand. It’s in its fifth season, but since each episode is only half an hour, it’s easy to catch up and perfect for binge watching!
Real estate mogul Eli Ward hasn’t had the best of luck lately–someone keeps stealing projects out from under him. So, with his new project, he’s keeping a low profile. Plus, he’s anticipating a fight from the somewhat eclectic folks currently living in the building. What he wasn’t anticipating was that the fight would be led by Brooke Worthington, the woman who absolutely rocked his world one unforgettable night. She might be the only woman in the city who doesn’t know who he is, which is refreshing…and tempting.
Graphic designer and part-time bartender Brooke Worthington is not interested in following her family’s plan for her. But she is interested in sharing a drink…and more…with a sexy stranger in a suit when her shift ends. The last thing she expects is to run into him again a few days later at a neighborhood meeting. Eli is hot, really hot, but she can’t afford distractions now that she has to save her building from some greedy real estate billionaire. Only, staying away isn’t as easy as she thought, especially when she learns exactly who Eli really is.
