Sam Sullivan has spent the last year of his life paralyzed. Unable to afford the state of the art surgery needed to repair his spinal cord, Sam has lost all hope. But when the first fully immersive virtual reality game goes live, Sam is given a second chance at life.
Rebirth Online offers players action, adventure, and a chance at real world riches. If Sam can rise through the ranks and claim his kingdom, he just might be able to earn enough money to afford the surgery he so badly needs.
Sam enters Rebirth Online excited to begin his adventure, but within fifteen minutes of spawning in the game, he is robbed, beaten, and left for dead.
He wakes to find himself in the care of Anna, a beautiful elf healer. Together they discover that he has an unbelievable special ability, one that allows him to instantly level. To use it, he must grind - literally - with the girls in his guild.
The only problem - A twelve hour cool down.
As Sam’s guild grows, he and Anna are joined by a beautiful human warrior, a feisty drow assassin, and a flighty female Furry. But when a run-in with a high level player named Kincaid ends with Anna’s kidnapping, Sam and his girls must pull all the punches to get their guild mate back. In the process, they uncover a secret with the potential to bring the entire game crashing down.

This is annoying mesh of LitRPG and harem. The main character is in an RPG game permanently but has the unique ability to level by having sex. So that’s kind of all he does. After the initial character creation scene and some disappointing fights, he meets some female players that he has sex with, they all level up, he gets some new spells, some more fights, and repeat. That’s what this is. Unfortunately, the RPG parts are surface deep and the fights aren’t particularly good. Not bad, but just sort of meh. The sex scenes range from fade to black to mildly graphic and are usually only a couple sentences long.
Overall, the novel doesn’t do either LitRPG or Harem particularly well.
Score: 5 out of 10
