Priority One by Shephani Hecht is book 4 in her EMS Heat series. This book can be read without having to read the previous stories even though there are a few references to book 3.
Dylan is a young man (a few months shy of being legal) new to Flint. He is an EMT in training, living with his big brother Lucas and Lucas’s partner Matt( both from book 3). Dylan is dealing with some inner demons that he has not shared with anyone.
Kaleb is a 10 year veteran of the Flint fire department. He is the “one night stand with no strings attached “kind of guy. He sets his sights on Dylan but is warn away from him. But Kaleb spots Dylan at an infamous gay nightspot (Dylan stole, excuse me, borrowed his brothers I.D. to get in) and makes a move on him.
Kaleb gets a taste of his own medicine after hooking up with Dylan.
I enjoy reading anything by Stephani Hecht but this story fell a little short of the mark. I wish the characters were a little more three dimensional and expanded a little more on their life. But if you are looking for a quick easy read this book is for you.

EMS Heat Book 4 - When firefighter Kaleb sees a sexy, shy paramedic in trouble, he knows he'll do anything to rescue his man.
It's never easy being the new guy in town. Especially when you're gay, single and broke. Not only does Dylan fall into every one of those categories, but he's also homeless and heartbroken as well and all before he's celebrated his twenty-first birthday. Even though his older brother, Lucas, let him move in and found him a job at the local EMS company, Dylan has never felt lower. He's been hurt and betrayed by everyone he loved, with the lone exception of Lucas and Dylan vows he'll never open himself up to the pain that comes with caring about others. If that means he dies alone and bitter, then so be it. It sure as hell beats getting kicked in the ass by life again.
After working nearly ten years as a firefighter for Flint, Kaleb has seen all kinds of misery and broken spirits. Just when he thought nobody could tug at his heartstrings anymore, along comes a young, shy, dark-haired paramedic named Dylan. Even though he tries to ignore it, the haunted expression in Dylan's gaze draws Kaleb in and before he knows it, he finds himself falling for the younger man. But will Kaleb be able to convince Dylan to open his heart one more time or will the past destroy both of their hopes for a future?
