Hilarious concept, but for some reason I found it not quite as humorous as Ames's other short fiction. This one is SUPER short (11 pages), so maybe she just didn't have enough traction to get it off the ground in that span of time. There isn't much by way of sexytimes, either, in case the perviness is a factor for you.

Nevertheless, still a freebie, which makes the price right for me.

This was quite a creative idea but not as funny as I had hoped. But it was free and short and helped pass the time while I was at the Dr.'s office.

Not bad, had a nice amount of humor. Someone has been kidnapping famous people over the last century and turning them into Chia pets. Xavier, the hottest male super model realizes he's been kidnapped when he awakes to find himself naked in a large green room in South America. But help soon comes in the form of a shape-shifting Chia pet who turns into a 6'4" delicious specimen of a man.

A quick 11 page story, free at I enjoyed Tam Ames other free stories much more, but I always love h

I loved the author's Caged, but this one didn't amuse me as much. In fact, I ended up skimming it. And at only 13 pages,, yeah. Didn't hold my interest.

Weird. So weird. But charming.

Unfortunately this book would be asked to sashay away if it had a lip sync for its life competition against Caged. Not that Caged would ever be in the bottom two. So Caged, Shanté you stay.

If you don't get what I'm saying then, bitch you need to watch some motherfrocking Rupaul's Dragrace!

Anyway this book was free which is always good. But it was too short, for me it felt like it was just getting started then it was over. Still a cute and enjoyable read.

This is a very funny short story with lots of humorous observations and comments. Totally over the top, but I enjoyed reading it. Anyone who likes unussual shfters, conspiracy theories and bad guys getting their just reward will probably like this story.

I was compelled to read this short story because of the image and title. Bizarre story. Tam Ames cracks me up. I have no clue where she gets her ideas from but this is an original one. O_o

Another quirky and funny story, too bad it wasn't a bit longer!

This was a free read rec'd to me by KarLynP. Mainly it caught my eye by the use of the phrase 'shapeshifting Chia Pet.' Strictly speaking, this is not exactly what happens as one of the heroes is a cat shifter who gets kidnapped and turned into a chia pet. Due to his shifter nature, he can then shift from a cat chia pet into a human. This is not a book to be taken very seriously and it felt very much like a writing exercise for the author, like 'Your prompts are Derek Zoolander and Chia Pets, ...more

This strangely funny and entertaining short was a quick ,cute read.
I liked "Caged" better, but really, even Chia pets can't compete with a Hamstershifter.:)

This book has been deleted from Scrib'd. Does anyone know if I can get it anywhere else? Did anyone ever download a copy?

While 'Caged' had me giggling this one didn't engage me at all.

I'm a single mom to a great 21 year old daughter at university, and I have a full-time job as well. I started reading m/m romance about 4 years ago, then went to reviewing and then writing.

Some dares and prompting of friends led me to the role of author and they've always been my biggest cheerleaders.
