You’re a broke college graduate. Your rich, distant uncle has just shown up out of nowhere and given you 100 million dollars! You’re now one of the ultra-rich and getting ready to move into a downtown garden mansion. And right at this moment, four handsome men come into your life. Could this be… the romance you’ve been waiting for!? But wait, there’s something behind their smiles that says otherwise…
