Family Buisness
Author
Mark Waid, James Robinson, Gabriele Dell'otto, Werther Dell'edera
Review
Someone is hunting for members of the Parker family and Peter's sister--the one he didn't know he had--knows why. There follows a crazed cross-continental chase, some spy business, and some family revelations. Also some villainy and double-crossing by various parties.

I'm not sure what I think of Peter Parker's parents as glamorous spies, but that's nitpicking. It's a fun, high-energy book with some emotional wallop, even if some aspects are fairly predictable.  Library Catalog

White Hot Kiss
Author
Jennifer L. Armentrout
Review
Not as good as the Lux series but still a fun read. Roth was extremely charming and Layla surprisingly can take care of her own. Live tattoos are aweseome, reminded me a bit of Kenyon's demon tattoo (Simi for Acheron), which I liked.  Library Catalog
