I finished this book with a heart full of joy, gratitude and infield dirt. The Prospects is the kind of perfect sports romance that happens when a genuine love of the game meets stubborn human goodness. Tenacious, sexy, effervescent, doggedly hopeful, and endlessly charming, with characters to root hard for and an irresistible voice - I completely adored it
Funny, tender, and hot, this book made me feel like I could dream bigger for myself. KT Hoffman's debut is, pardon the sports analogy, a homerun. If you liked Ted Lasso, you will love The Prospects
KT Hoffman has written a thrillingly swoony and big-hearted love story between two baseball players who you can't help but root for, even as they root against each other . . . The Prospects is a beautifully resonant appeal to a future where gay and trans people are celebrated, and even expected, in sports
A gorgeously written tale of queer joy and trans possibility, a heart-stealing romance and a loving tribute to the art of baseball - particularly the beauty, struggle, and camaraderie of the minor leagues. But what I love most of all about this book is how much it is a story about hope, how deeply comforted and at home I felt in both its honesty and its optimism. This is my favourite book - of this and any year
The queer romcom I've been waiting for! Gene is the short king of my dreams and Luis is the secret cinnamon roll I want to wrap in a warm hug! The Prospects is a love letter to baseball, the Pacific Northwest, and trans joy. I adored every second of it!
The Prospects is optimism and grit, dedication and unbridled joy - an absolute delight!
