Max Panaquer is an immigrant living a quiet life in Los Angeles with his girlfriend Amber. He is also the son of the last South American dictator, Jose Panaquer. When Max gets words of his father's impending death, Max must make a choice of whether to go back to Margovia and talk to his father one more time.

Margovia is a melting pot of ideologies. The people are crying out for democracy after years under a Cold War-era dictator. But the Panaquers are not quick to relinquish the power they've accumulated through the years. Max fled Margovia because he didn't want to become his father's successor to the presidency, but now he may have no choice but to take the reins of power himself. All the while, he has to figure out who his allies and enemies are.

As Max struggles to find his place in a rapidly changing world of politics and chaos, it may very well be up to him if being the good son means following your father's wishes or throwing them away for your own.

Your characters are latino? If so why are you telling us to picture them as caucasian entertainers? You can do better than this.

I was interested in reading this at first but I stopped at Chapter 0. It is fine to have your characters look a certain way in your mind. But is this a movie script? If not you can not tell your readers how to picture your characters by naming off celebrities. Leave some room for imagination. Some description is fine but the point of books is that we the readers have the freedom to see things our way. I do not want to be told to picture Taylor Swift or Jay Leno. Jay Leno is a tv host and Taylor Swift Really?? No.
I am not interested in Taylor Swift as a character. Describe your character like Taylor but don't force it down our throats. You should delete this chapter. It is unnecessary

Ok... two things. 1) it's never a good idea to start with your character waking up. Start somewhere else-- in the middle of action or a decision that needs to be made. Remember, the scene starts when your protagonist makes a plan for achieving a goal (even a small one, like being on time to school) and proceeds to work toward that goal, then encounters obstacles. Also, the intimate moment in the beginning reads like the author has never been in a relationship, it's pretty disingenuous. Don't know how to help you there... Read more romance novels maybe? Watch movies? Honestly, if you're not very familiar with certain emotional dynamics, it's not a deal breaker. Do your best, and definitely don't open with that -- the naivete just comes right through. I really hope this helps. Best of luck to you.
