People always see Maxwell as someone who derives pleasure from hurting people just to show how powerful he is but not knowing he usually has 101 reasons before hurting anyone.....but he messed with the wrong person because of his bad temper and anger from the past
Olive who didn"t know everything about Maxwell but knew he hated to be challenged or toyed with. In her process of teaching him a lesson, she took it upon herself to challenge him, break all his rules, toy with him. Unknown to her that she was getting closer and closer to him, as she pryed and discovered so many things about him which she used to blackmail him as she purposely continued cracking the walls he built against his family and exposed the real man.
On the other hand Maxwell knew from the day he hurt her that she already cracked his wall a little unknowingly by pouring out all her vulnerability that looked all too familiar to him. He knew there was more to Olive but he couldn"t place his hands on it not until he found out that she is the step sister of his best friend who is very overprotective of her, because of what she went through the hands of her step brothers and sisters who never showed her love, the girl he had once saved during family vacation, and she is the step sister to his girlfriend he planned on marrying.
