Live in the Moment or Plan for the Future?
By Sara Daniel

I’ve always been a planner, but as I get older, I realize that the times I am happiest are the ones when I’m relaxed, living directly in the moment, enjoying life with my family. The times I am most stressed are also the ones where I haven’t planned well, and everything is blowing up in my face, leaving me stressed and overwhelmed by the moment. So, to live in the moment or plan for the future? I think most of us can agree there’s probably a compromise somewhere between those two extremes, but what happens when you put two people together who are at opposite ends of the spectrum? In Captivating the CEO, sparks fly!

 Colin Vanderhayden might only be thirty-five, but he has retirement on his mind full time. Those financial gurus who encourage you to save and scrimp and plan for the worse? They have nothing on Colin. He is all work and no play, determined not to let his life crumble around him the way he watched his grandparents’ plans for retirement dissolve into tragedy.

Then Willow Jeffries steps into his life. If Willow wants something, she does it now. She doesn’t defer gratification. After all, who can guarantee you’re going to be around in the future to enjoy all those things you put off? Certainly not Willow. She doesn’t know how much time she has, but she’s going to make every minute count right now, and what she wants to do most with her time is show Colin how to have to good time and relax.

And she might just be making progress, as long as she doesn’t slip up and allow Colin to start planning on her as part of his future…

Genres: contemporary romance, office romance, medical romance, new adult

He only plans for the future. She might not have a future.

When live-for-the-moment massage therapist Willow Jeffries bursts into Colin Vanderhayden's office, she makes it her mission to loosen up the future-focused CEO, knowing each moment of the present is too precious to waste. Despite her immediate attraction, the only future she can offer is one full of heartache.

 The last thing Colin needs is a flighty woman messing up his carefully-constructed plans, but her heavenly massages and addictive personality prove hard to resist. But he has no idea how sick she is.

No longer able to ignore her life-threatening medical condition, Willow slips away to spare Colin a miserable future with her. Is Colin willing to sacrifice his well-laid future plans to get Willow back? 


 Cupping her face with his hands and angling his mouth, he poured the intensity she'd previously only seen him devote to his work into turning her body into a tingling, craving mass of need. She loved the way he cradled her-so gentle, yet firm.

Stars danced in front of her eyes, but she willed them away to press her tongue between his lips. No matter how light-headed she became, she refused to miss a moment of the kiss. Colin's mouth made the opportunity to enjoy worth the risk of passing out.

But, too soon, he broke off, panting, his eyes dilated with desire. “I have to get that.” 

“Get what?” His words made no sense, then her ears started ringing. No, not her ears. His damned phone.

“Of course you do.” 

But he'd already turned his attention to a conversation he gave far more importance to than anything she offered. 

Sinking onto the couch, she pressed her fingers to her still tingling lips. Dear God, she hoped she didn't affect him as strongly as he affected her. If he became emotionally invested, she'd bring pain and misery into his life.
