I absolutely LOVED this movie Rom-Com. We all knew what would happen, but the lead up to it was worth your time. Even though these are less known actors, the all did a great job and made you love their characters. Well worth your time.

This is a very good movie about a single woman who hires a man for an event just to keep her relatives from giving her a hard time, then she starts falling for him. If you love love stories, you will love this one. 5 stars here.

Not what i expected

"I was disappointed in the movie, "A Hired Heart" because, although it had the potential of being a cute romantic comedy, it did not pass my test. I am on the lookout for romantic comedies and romances which do not have language or sensuality in them. I read the reviews and was mistakenly led to believe this was an innocent love story...one I could share with my teenage kids or my close friends. But the sex scene, the foul language, and the message of using a person for gain, was not appealing to me, and I will probably not loan it out to others. I will stick to Love Comes Softly, Love's Enduring Promise, Emma (with Gwyneth Paltrow), and The Inheritance (with Meredith Baxter Birney) any time, over this. Sorry!"
A WONDERFUL TENDER ROMANCE WITH HUMOUR

"A wonderful tender romance with no blatant nudity -- a tender seduction of the senses and emotions. A young local lady doctor lost her husband and can't let him go. The purpose of the gorgeous bull, I didn't understand. Is it the bull that killed her husband? Then why keep him?
Love Graham Greene's roll as worker and friend of her father-in-law. Her father-in-law wants her to be happy and demands that she find a male escort to the local celebration.
Loved Barry Cullen as the hired escort and his dealing with the platonic role although she seems to think that he is a male prostitute.
She soon finds out that she needs a bit of cuddling -- which led to a humorous situation.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO THOSE THAT LOVE AN EXCELLENT, INNOCENT ROMANCE."
The Hired Heart - one of my all-time favorites!

"I saw The Hired Heart on our lifetime TV channel and LOVED IT! I was in the mood (as I am most times) for a happy, uplifting movie with romance AND good ending, and this filled the bill for me. Enter - a girl who is a doctor in a small town. She is forever hounded by her entire town to let them help her "find a husband." Her idea to "HIRE" someone to be that person on a totally platonic level for one week - well, that caught my eye right away. The process of their relationship becoming more than just a hired heart was a total pleasure to watch. I highly recommend this movie to all movie-lovers who enjoy "a chick-flick" with a happy ending."

"Garnet is the heroine, a young family doctor who recently lost her husband to a death-ride on a rodeo bull. She is tired of her father-in-law and other people in her picturesque town of Sweetwater, CO, being tired of HER unhappiness. Out of desperation she hires a "boyfriend" from an escort agency, and tells him to sweep her off her feet whenever they're in public to convince everyone they're seriously involved.
While the premise was appealing, the reality was a bit more mottled. Garnet, as both doctor and grieving wife, I found less than convincing. Claiming to have no interest in romance, she nevertheless behaves in an immature and needy, please-love-me-come-hither manner. She treats her long-suffering hiree with disdain, even while availing herself fully (and I do mean fully) of his "services", (calling him a "prostitute", for example, even when later she crawls under the covers with him, wearing lingerie and claiming all she wants is a snuggle... hmm).
The movie seems to be all about what the lad can do for her, a grief-stricken, lonely, beautiful, inconsistent and at times selfish woman... while she offers him little in return except verbal abuse. I'd say Garnet still has some serious growing up to do.
I don't recommend this movie. Perhaps there's good messages in it about moving on from grief and loving again, but they could have been done in a classier way. "
The disappointed heart

"I loved "Love Comes Softly", and when I saw that this was recommended for those who liked that movie, I bought this one. "The Hired Heart" did not have the morals or spirituality of "Love Comes Softly". There was also bad language, which was not present in the other movie. For anyone looking for a movie without language and pre-marital sex, this is not it. The story was good enough to stand on its own without adding the language and immorality."
