A very interesting set of characters - the nerd and the muscle-bound bouncer. Adam seemed quite stereotyped with his study of bugs, wearing glasses and crippling OCD together with panic attacks. Denver seemed quite stereotyped as the big, dumb guy without prospects working the door of a bar. However all is not as it seems and there is much more to these characters.Denver is accepting of Adam's condition and together they form a relationship although faced with many challenges brought on by the OCD. There is no magic cure just acceptance and support.Adam and Denver develop a relationship which includes a D/s component with the control element helping Adam with some of his issues. I can't say whether this is the correct way to handle such complex problems but it is done really well in the book. It is great to see that Adam is also seeing a therapist.
