Annie's day-care center in Chicago is doing well, but her family keeps insisting that she move back home. They just don't understand that she's a mature, independent woman now. That's when her best friend Tara suggests she bring a fake boyfriend home to meet them. She's sure it will get them to ease up on her friend. Annie hesitantly agrees and goes to an auction to buy a date. When she sees an incredibly handsome man on the auction block, she's immediately smitten and enthusiastically bids five thousand dollars!
