Max is a friend of Paige's. He listens to her problems while keeping his life a secret.

Max became a good friend of Dawn's in the new year and helped her cope with some stress in her life while getting stoned with her. He also supported Paige whenever she needed it.

Max continued to supply Dawn with weed whenever she needed to get high. After hearing that she saw Adam & Helen at Andy's gala for Reese, he tried to convince her to move back home, to no avail. Max continued to tell Dawn that the only way to get things back on track between her and her parents would be to move home. He was supportive when Dawn revealed that Adam & Helen were talking divorce. Soon, Max saw Adam for the first time and had an odd reaction. Once Helen filed for divorce, Max went over to the house when Adam was packing. Adam met Max and revealed that Dawn wasn't at home. Max asked Adam why he didn't recognize him, but Adam didn't understand. Max shocked Adam by revealing that he is Adam's son with Cassie Nova! After Max revealed to Adam that he is his son, he pushed Adam away, upset that he abandoned him. Adam tried to get through to Max, but it was no use. Adam then met with Helen and Max met her. Dawn showed up and was shocked to see that she had a half-brother that she considered her best friend. Max told her that he couldn't tell her the truth out of fear; they made up. Cassie, meanwhile, told her son that she wanted him to have a relationship with Adam. Max started to soften towards Adam when he revealed to his father that he wanted to do something with his life. Adam encouraged him to do so. Max saw Robin and instantly developed a crush on her. He then interviewed with her to be a photographer at Robertson Enterprises; he got the job! While working with Robin, Max flirted with her. When he tried to kiss her, she told him that they could only be friends. Max was unnerved when he spotted Adam and Robin growing closer, however. After Dawn ran away again, Max found her living on the streets. He agreed not to say anything and she told him she couldn't go home again. On New Year's, Max went for it and kissed Robin at midnight.

Max on cloud nine after sharing a kiss with Robin on New Year's Eve. His hopes were soon dashed when she told him that they could only be friends because they worked together and he was too young for her. Max was secretly upset, however, that Robin was growing closer to Adam. Adam and Cassie, meanwhile, continued to support Max's career at Robertson Enterprises and his crush, as they had no idea that his crush was on Robin. Max soon learned that he and Robin would be working together on the re-launch of the facial cream. Together, they came up with a great ad. While developing the pictures, Max purposely locked Robin in the dark room with him so they would grow closer. The plan worked; Max was miffed when Adam saved them. Shortly after, the re-launch was a huge success. Max was in awe that his photos were being used in the new Robertson Enterprises boutique. Max had hoped to celebrate with Robin, but Adam took Robin out first. Max realized that he had to do something to keep them apart. He was at the hospital during the ice storm and saw Adam and Robin kiss. He sent Robin a message on the day of Blake's memorial service, letting her know he was thinking of her. Max, meanwhile, supported Dawn when she came out as a lesbian. Max continued to lust after Robin, despite her growing closer to Adam. Dominick then ordered Max and Robin to come up with a new Christmas ad-campaign for the facial cream; Max was thrilled that they would get to work together again, because he thought that they could grow closer, which they did. Max, however, overheard Adam planning to propose to Robin following the photoshoot. Knowing that to stop the proposal, Max set a plan into motion. After the photoshoot, he grabbed Robin's phone and sent Adam a text asking him to meet Robin at the boutique vs. the restaurant. When Adam arrived, Max rigged it so some scaffolding fell on top of Adam! Max was worried, however, when more materials collapsed on his father than he thought. He left Adam laying in a pool of blood. He went to Robin and gave her back her cell phone, with the message erased. She asked him where Adam could be, but he claimed he didn't know. Then, they got a call about Adam's accident and they rushed to the hospital. Max was worried that he seriously hurt his father when he had to have surgery to stop internal bleeding. He was relieved when the surgery was a success and that Adam would make a full recovery. Then, Max learned about Dawn's rape and supported his half-sister. Robin, meanwhile, continued to question Max about the accident, and he happened to change his story a little, which caused Robin to worry. Max, meanwhile, was thrilled when Adam dumped Robin. He didn't know why, but Max realized that his plan to keep Adam and Robin apart worked. On Christmas Day, Max gave Robin a present and kissed her. He was taken aback, however, when Robin told him that they would never be any more friends. Adam and Max also learned that because of the fire at the boutique, Adam's accident wouldn't be investigated because the fire would have erased any evidence.

Max continued to pursue Robin until she finally told him that they would never be together. He was devastated but she told him that she had to be brutally honest with him. Robin, meanwhile, believed that Max knew more about Adam's accident then he was letting on, so she hired Brad to investigate him. Brad befriended Max and eventually got Max to confess to Adam's accident, which Robin overheard. Max was then at the hospital while Dawn was shot, and noticed Adam and Robin were growing close again. Once they knew that Dawn was out of harms way, Robin told Adam the truth about Max's role in the accident and they confronted him. Adam told his son that he wouldn't press charges but he disowned him, leaving Max crushed. Robin also fired Max and slapped him across the face. Max tried to get back into Adam's good graces, to no avail. Shortly after, Kim offered Max a job at Roboto as the photographer and model for the Gen Next House and he accepted, realizing that he needed space away from Adam and Robin. Max also said goodbye to Cassie when she left town. Before he entered the house, Abby told Max that he should date Paige. Max entered the Gen Next House with Abby, Andrew, Paige and Cheresa. Abby convinced Max to pursue Paige so she could be with Andrew. Max and Paige grew closer, despite her still having feelings for Andrew. At the Summer Send-Off Dance, the kids got drunk and passed out. Andrew slipped on some water, hit his head and was knocked unconscious into the pool. Cheresa saved him. In the wake of the near tragedy, Max and Adam reconciled and agreed to move forward together. Max and Abby were upset that Andrew and Paige reunited, and Max agreed to help Abby break them up. Max, then, supported Dawn when Helen "died", and was thrilled to be reunited with Cassie when she returned to town.

Max was thrilled to have Cassie back in town, but was unsettled to learn that her fiancÚ is the same age as him. Max warned Jacob not to hurt his mother or he would answer to him. Jacob reassured Max that he was in love with his mother. Max and Abby, meanwhile, agreed to team up to break up Andrew and Paige as they both wanted half of the couple for themselves. Abby told Max that she was going to seduce Andrew and she would let him know to bring Paige over so she could catch Andrew cheating on her. Max agreed. He and Paige started to grow closer and Abby, then, told Max it was happening. Max took Paige to Andrew's apartment, where she saw Andrew kissing a half-naked Abby. Paige rushed off and dumped Andrew as a result. Max and Abby were thrilled that their plan worked. Max then grew closer to Paige as he comforted her during the breakup and through Bob's death. Soon, Max kissed Paige and she responded by kissing him back. Robin saw them kissing and warned Max not to hurt her niece. Shortly after, Max was overjoyed when Paige agreed to be his girlfriend. Max, also, stood up for Adam at his wedding to Robin, which was interrupted with Shane's theory that Helen was buried alive. Max helped his father dig Helen's grave, where they found her alive. Max and Paige continued to grow closer, which made Abby upset as Andrew was still not interested in her. Max told his friend to keep trying as they worked hard to break up Paige and Andrew. Robin realized that Paige was getting close to Max and confronted him. Max told Robin that they were just friends, but soon after Max and Paige were stealing kisses. Leah and Jeff freaked out at the idea of Paige seeing Max after Robin told them about his role in Adam's accident a few years earlier. They forbid Paige to see Max, so she moved out of the house. Max supported her and they made love. Max and Paige were walking on the pier when they found Dawn passed out on a bench; they then saw Cheresa's body floating in the river. Max saved Cheresa's life. His heroic actions caused Jeff and Leah to warm to the idea of Paige dating Max and they made amends. They were relieved when Cheresa slowly came out of her coma. Abby, meanwhile, continued to be upset that Andrew didn't want to date her. Paige overheard Abby talking to Max about it and confronted them; they covered with a lie. However, Andrew realized the truth and confronted Max and Abby on New Year's Eve. Max admitted the truth that he and Abby worked to break Paige and Andrew up; Paige left devastated by her boyfriend's actions.
