All-New X-Men #30

After (finally) wrapping up the Xavier and the Future Brotherhood of Mutants storyline last month, All-New X-Men takes a break and gives the characters a chance to breathe. All-New X-Men #30 deals primarily with the state of two relationships, one which has been brewing for several months and the other which turns out to be a pleasant surprise.

As the cover suggests, this is the issue where Angel and X-23 finally get together. It's certainly an odd pairing, but as Angel states during the issue he doesn't need to know why he likes Laura only that he does. This is a relationship I'm going to want to see develop over the next several months.

The other major plot thread involves Emma Frost trying to pick a fight with Jean Grey, but not for the reason you may suspect. The ending of that story completely changes the pair's dynamic (which didn't have anywhere to go) and opens up the door for several new possibilities between Scott Summers' ex-girlfriends as actual friends. Poor Cyclops. Worth a look.
