Max is a charming and cocky journalist, but there is depth to the ladies man exterior he has always portrayed. Max grew up with his parents Carl and Patricia and his younger brother Callum.
When he was eighteen, Max suffered a horrific car accident after getting into a car with a friend who was over the drinking limit. The accident killed his friend and left Max in a wheelchair. After years of rehab, Max was able to learn to walk again, but the accident taught him not to take anything for granted and always make the most of his life.
Season OneEditWhen Izzie Roberts found a job working as an Editor for a newspaper where she met the charming, but arrogant Max Warren, thus beginning City Girls' first ever love story. Izzie and Max's banter soon led to flirting, but a series of events such as Izzie's attempt of undercover journalism threatened their budding romance. In an emotional moment Izzie revealed the truth about her rape and this led to an understanding between the two. The chemistry between Max and Izzie was explosive and in the season finale, Max finally gave Izzie an ultimatum about their future. When Izzie didn't turn up to meet him, Max was disappointed that things were over before they realy begun. But at the same time, a news report showed that Mike Taylor had escaped from his psychiatric hospital.
Season TwoEditSeason Two revealed Izzie Roberts was tied up somewhere with her rapist Mike Taylor, who determined that if he couldn't have her, no one else would either. Holly Newman and Max Warren teamed up together to find Izzie and when they talk to a former colleague of Mike's, Melissa Reeves, she reveals that she was also a victim of Mike. This leads them to a garage where they find the place that Mike has been keeping Izzie. In an intense car chase, Mike forces his car off the road and down a cliff. Izzie is devastated when Max holds her back and Mike perishes.
Izzie struggles to live with her guilt, she believes that she could have helped Mike and she resorts to her former comfort- vodka. Max soon became worried about Izzie's drinking and finally persuaded her to join AA, where she met the mysterious Jake Garrison. Izzie and Jake's friendship went from strength to strenth, leaving Max feeling somewhat jealous.
When Izzie confronted Sean after she realised that he had got Ashley hooked on cocaine, Season in revenge spiked Izzie's drink leading to her falling off the wagon. This lead to the destruction of her relationship with Max. Drew also mourned the end of his relationship with Ashley and in a shocking twist, he and Izzie fell into bed. However, what Izzie didn't realise was that Max was on his way to propose to her.
Season ThreeEditIzzie Roberts and Drew Tyler struggled with their guilt after their one night stand, especially after Izzie and Max got engaged. Eventually Izzie confessed the truth leading to the destruction of her relationship with Max and friendship with Ashley.
After Drew's murder, pretty much everybody was under suspicion. Investigating officer Nathan Phillips took a shine to Izzie leading to Max becoming jealous. Things got complicated when Izzie's fingerprints were found on the knife that killed Drew. Max confessed to murder to protect Izzie, but she had already been cleared as she remembered she had got drunk at the club and ended up self harming. Max came to blows with Nathan leading him to be arrested for assault.

Izzie and Max eventually put their issues aside and began to look forward to parenthood. However, the arrival of Amanda Samuels at the West Lodge Advertiser caused Izzie a number of headaches.
