Feb 23, 2013 rated it it was amazing

oh my god, this was adorable.

thanks so much to loederkoningin for writing a review for it, so i could read it myself, because it is 19 pages of awesome!

and i don't get to say that about a lot of the stuff i read just because i cannot believe it is real; all the monster erotica and lactation erotica and hucow erotica.

this is real.

and it barely even qualifies as erotica.

so, yeah, this is a story about a shapeshifter who goes man-to-hamster. which must be kind of disappointing. because - yayyy - yo
You and me baby ain't nothing but mammals!

This 19 pages short story is about a gay hamster lusting after the boy that bought him at the petstore and eventually ends up having sex with him.

It's not what you think!

I swear to God, I draw the line somewhere...but apparently just not at hamster sex.

And why would I? For this is a mean, vengeful hamster. And more importantly, a shape-shifter. You see, the hamster in this story is actually a hot boy. Poor Marcin, that's his name, was just nom nom nomm

How "cute"!
Smart-mouthed hamster(!)-shifter with bad ass attitude is lusting for taking revenge on his captors and after his new "owners" luscious body...yeah!

Absolutely brilliant! I am still laughing. This is one of the funniest and most creative stories I have read in a long time. And it's a sweet love story on top. What more can you ask for?

I mean, the idea of a hamster shifter is funny enough, but to actually read about this guy's thoughts while he is in hamster form was hilarious. The story opening got me right there: "Marcin sat in the corner glaring at the two hamsters on the other side of the cage. If hamsters could kill with a glance, the lit

That was fun! About time somebody wrote about hamster-shifters.

Although I would have freaked if my hamster girl Jette had shifted...

This was my first of many things - first time using, first reeeeeeally short story that's non-anthology, first m/m (!!), and, most awesome of all, first HAMSTER SHIFTER. "Caged" was a super quick and funny read that should easily lift anyone's spirits in the span of 17 pages. Marcin (our hamster shifter) is awesome, and his hilarious and snarky stream-of-consciousness inner monologue while in hamster form had me alternately smirking, chuckling and laughing out loud. Give it a shot - h ...more
He leaned down and nuzzled Hamilton's crotch through the paisley boxers. Oh, that smelled great; he was hungrier for cock than he was for a nice juicy steak. Food could wait.
I get your point, but it could have been phrased more elegantly.

Anyhow, I expected this to be cleverer, funnier, and more satisfying overall.
The premise seemed hilarious, but the execution was mediocre – hamstershifter is bought by a guy who struts around naked all the time (when at home, duh) and as soon as he can shift aga

I've read many books with different types of shifters but hamsters take the cake! Is there anything LESS bad-ass to shift into? I think not...

I'm a sucker for a hot, funny story and this was IT. It was funny, short, and sweet. I'm going to be reading more by Tam Ames in the future!

OMG!!! I think I'm still laughing. That was the funniest hamster shifter story ever!

I expected the worst from this book. Seriously, a hamster shifter? WTF? A GAY HAMSTER SHIFTER? Double WTF!?! To my delight, this short story which easily takes less than 10 minutes to read is good. The writing was tight. Sticking to one POV was pleasurable.

Marek, er Marcin was so darn funny. He's a snarky vengeful little bugger. Hamilton is a sweet sweet guy. This story felt like tongue in cheek for me the entire time. I like it! Maybe Ms. Ames will read this review and write about this storylin

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.
