The people of Brooklyn are getting ready to party. Millionaire baseball star Jake Thomas is coming home to announce his engagement to his high school sweetheart, Christina. He may have spent the last few years playing the field - in every sense - but Jake knows it's time to settle down. And a big news story might help mask the sex scandal lurking in his past... Ryan Rossetti isn't in the mood to celebrate. He grew up with Jake and they played together in the minor leagues until injury forced Ryan to quit. Now he paints houses for a living and watches Jake getting richer and living the dream. But Ryan has something that Jake needs: Christina. Recently Ryan has been her shoulder to cry on, and one thing has led to another. There's no way Ryan is about to let Jake walk off with the prize again... Christina Mercado longs to escape her Brooklyn tenement and dull job. Ryan treats her better than Jake ever has, but life with Jake would mean that she and her family would never have to worry about money again. Christina will have to make a choice, and there's a hefty price tag attached... As the 'Welcome Home Jake' banners go up on East Eighty-First Street and the crowds begin to gather, it's clearly going to be one hell of a party.
