They'll challenge what it means to be human and test the limits of love.
Amanda is a scientist for the military's cyborg program. Programming and repairing once-human soldiers is a lot easier than trying to date, so she buries herself in her work. She'll never admit that the cyborgs often seem like more than machines to her - especially the handsome AD-214.
Even though Cyborg Sector has erased his memories and turned him into a killing machine, AD-214 is aware of Amanda and her kind, gentle nature. When he starts to remember his former life, his system malfunctions, and only Amanda can save him. Then things go horribly wrong, and his squad of cyborgs - along with Amanda - become fugitives hunted by the military.
As the rogue cyborgs' memories come flooding back, their human personalities begin to re-emerge. Amanda's bond with AD-214 intensifies and she discovers that none of the cyborgs is merely a robot.
After she's captured by the military, AD-214 and his squad risk everything to rescue her. He and Amanda must fight not only for their survival, but the chance to prove that love is possible, even for a machine.

Cyborg heat was great but could've been better with a more believable ending. The solution seemed a little too convenient and uninspired... a deus ex machina of sorts.
I liked the heroine best. Don't remember her name, but she was smart and spunky.
Never. Nothing will ever be able to compel me to ever listen to another Michael Pauley recorded audiobook. He was terrible. Nails on a chalkboard terrible. He succeeded in making the heroine, who happened to be a smart and hot scientist, sound like a breathy airhead. He should be banned from narrating women.
Don't bother with the audiobook. The story is promising and I'd definitely look into other books in this series but the narration is a letdown.
"Not what i expected."
I have to admit i was a little hesitate about this audio book. I have never read/listen to any books about cyborgs. I was afraid i would not like it. I was wrong i loved it. This is book 1 to this series. I look forward to more in this series. .This is the story of Amanda, a scientist that works with cyborgs at Cyborg Sector. She tries to improve the cyborgs and by accident cause them to start remembering there past and start thinking independently. It starts with AD214 who wakes up and rescues his team of cyborg. They leave the compound and take Amanda with them after fighting their way out. Later another team of cyborgs are sent to destroy them. The scientist that started the cyborgs is the one who send the other cyborgs out to get what they call the blue team. These cyborgs are called clones. Blue team loses some of their team members but others escape. However, Amanda is taken. She is kept as a prisoner by the other scientist who has a secret about himself. Will AD214 and his team save Amanda? What is the secret??
I received this book free from the author for an honest review. I recommend this book,
"Hot cyborgs, sexy doctors, and adrenaline oh my!!!"
What would you do if your life's work was changing before your eyes in a wondrous new way that no one could predict? Would you deactivate the cyborgs you have come to care about so that you could correct the problem or would you have the courage that Amanda had and risk your life, career, credibility and heart to save them?!
AD-214 has been awakened and his confusion is understandable. The only thing that makes sense is that he needs to save his team and somehow Amanda is a part of the team. With each minute that passes AD-214 is changing and so is blue team. He knows that he is a cyborg and that something is malfunctioning with his systems but until he knows what it is he will do everything he can to keep his team safe and Amanda close.
This is a hot new series that's starts out with a bang! It grabs the reader and does not let go! Lisa Lace has created another amazing series that took me on an adventure that I did not foresee! She literally breathed new life in to her characters and made you feel for her cyborgs. I cannot wait to see what the next adventure will be!!!
"Half Man, Half Machine!"
Lisa Lace's captivating new series Burning Metal, and it's alluring combination of man and machine does not disappoint! The plot was well thought out, fast paced with lot's of action, twist, suspense, and sexual tension between the H/h. I especially like the characters, and how AD-214 slowly becomes aware, takes charge of his "unite", and develops feelings for Amanda.
Michael Pauley's performance was good. He did an excellent job portraying the cyborg's; however, his voice for some of the characters was real deep which made it harder to hear with headphones.
I enjoyed this quick listen and look forward to the next book in the series. Received audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
"Great start to a new Series by Lisa Lace"
I received this audio book from the author for an honest review. Lisa Lace is a wonderful and amazing writer of suspense, thrill and romance. She knows what the reader wants and gives it to us. Michael Pauley does a great job of narrating this particular book. The fact that he is a man narrating women's voices does not take away from the story. With other narrators, some times it does. He really does a great job of distinguishing each of the characters. This is the first book in Lisa Lace's Series "Burning Metal". I have read her other series and this one is just as good. Great story teller. Looking forward to more of these books in this Series.
"Great New Series"
This is book one of the new series Burning Metal. This audiobook is different than anything I have listened before.
Cyborgs are previous humans that have suffered severe injury and have been repaired with machine parts. They are not suppose to have any memories of their human life but one of them malfunctions and start having flash backs.
Amanda is a scientist that works on cyborgs. There is a special connection between AD-214 and her. In a series of unexpected events she becomes a fugitive with him and his unit.
There is action, suspense, romance, and some unexpected twists.
The narrator did a fairly good job bringing the story to life. The story wraps up nicely with a good conclusion.
**This audiobook was provided free of charge in exchange for my honest unbiased opinion **
"Loved This One"
A group of cyborgs are being held and used as weapons. The government gathers these men up after they have been severely injured and gets them to sign their life away. They spend time hooked into a machine until they are needed. A scientist who wants to have them become autonomous changes their programming. She does not know what she has done but the Captain of the unit is the first one she implants with the new programming. It sets off a chain of events that are exciting at best. The story is so written that it makes you believe that this could actually happen. I was given this book in exchange for an unbiased review via audiobook boom.
"Falling for a cyborg"
Received an ARC for honest review. I was pleasantly surprised with the premise of the story. When a young female scientist, Amanda uploads a computer program it makes the cyborgs start to think on their own. It turns out they are more human than the scientists are told. Amanda spends time with the escaped cyborgs and learns they are more than machines and she holds a special place in her heart for one of them. Amanda is held by her employer against her will and her special cyborg and his crew have to save her. Imaginative, action packed and spicy reading.
Smart, sexy, scientific nerd, Amanda Conrad uploads a new upgrade into her favorite cyborg with astonishing results. He is becoming aware...and learning and he is able to upload this amazing technology into the systems of his squad. They escape the facility they have been held in, taking the sexy little scientist with them. But the higher ups are afraid of this new development and the entire squad is ordered to be exterminated. Twists and turns in the storyline keep you wondering where it will end and if things work out for the dashing Blue Squad leader and the scientist who has made them what they will be. Great audio book!!! Hoping there will be more in the future.
"Cyborgs come to life, wow"
This story had me from chapter 1 wow, it 3:30am but well worth the lack of sleep. You have action, lust, sex and suspense all roll into one. I can't wait for the next book.
"good story, performance less than great"
the story line was entertaining, but the narrator's proclivity to talk louder and louder as an action scene or sex scene was happening detracted from the story. it's like he thinks getting louder makes it better. So I only rate this 4 out of 5.
