‘Matching Hearts’: A Perfectly Unexpected Romance

February 15, 2020 2 Comments

When it comes to love, Julia Palmer (Taylor Cole) is a pro. Only it’s not her own love story she’s happily championing but those of her clients as a matchmaker. Her work fulfills her, and for now, she’s happy keeping busy, while trying to impress on her boss that she’s capable of handling more responsibility.

The best kind of challenge presents itself when their firm spies a potential client in the handsome entrepreneur Daniel (Ryan Paevey). Successful in every material comfort, Daniel believes he can only attribute his success to his life’s philosophy: stay single. Without it, he doesn’t believe he could have achieved all he did. But with some persuasion and Julia working as his match-maker, Daniel – and Julia, just may discover, there’s more to life than spreadsheets.

From here, we all know how things will turn out, but I’m all about gushing over any and all Hallmark romantic-comedies, so let’s do that.

Matching Hearts (2020) Hallmark Review

Unusual for my viewing habits, I haven’t seen a single one of the ‘Love Ever After’ programming. At least I haven’t up until now. As the first I’ve seen in this quartet, it’s witty, fun and of course, sweet as any of the network’s romances are. There’s more pair ups than I can keep track of, but that’s, in part, what makes the story so cute and endearing.

Of course, the main couple is Julia and Daniel, whose story is lovely. I enjoy Taylor Cole in everything she’s appeared in, but what’s better is she and Ryan Paevey (Hallmark’s own Mr. Darcy, of course!) are quite good together. They share solid chemistry in their screen time together, and seem to play off each other well as their characters fight attraction (which I do feel between them) and professionalism.

Short, but perfect, Matching Hearts is the ideal Saturday night in for any fans of this network or just sweet (and clean) romance in general. Plus, there’s plenty of hearts, pops of red and one cute first kiss.
