The Macgregor brothers - Robert, Eian, and Ryan - are all recently widowed and forced to live together in Ryan's beach house in sunny Florida. To get them to reengage with the world, Ryan's daughter, Mary Kate, signs them up for dance lessons and insists that each find a partner in time for her wedding.
Robert, the eldest of the brothers, rediscovers an old friend who brings the spark back to his life. Eian, a former professional baseball player, takes another swing at love with the widow of his best friend. Ryan, the doctor in the family, hopes his beautiful new dance instructor can put the spring back in his step. But Mary Kate's fiancé is a member of the rival Campbell clan, and as the wedding approaches, joyful anticipation turns into a heated family rivalry.
Together the Macgregor brothers will dance their way through first-date jitters and plenty of wrong moves as they try to save the wedding - and restart their lives.

Bryan Mooneys' "Been in Love Before" is an intricately woven story about family and true love. I fell in love with every character, and at the end of the novel found myself wanting to hear more about each one. The accuracy of the traditions, places, and historical information embedded in the storyline was unexpected and refreshing. This is a novel that you feel like you can walk right into, as a member of the cast so to speak. So many of the characters represent someone all of us have known in our lives, and the relatability really makes this a fun read. Every chapter ended and I'd say, "just one more chapter!" until I reached the end of the book. I have been a Mooney fan since his early works Love Letters, Indie, and A Second Chance, especially because his writing is remniscent of Nicholas Sparks. Christmas in Vermont was my former favorite of his novels, but Been in Love Before is my new fave! Mr. Mooney is truly carving out a niche for himself in adult romantic fiction, surpassing his competition and impressing me more and more with each novel! His eloquence and respectful way of delivering a love story are captivating and endearing! The artfully written storyline and well crafted characters in this book made it stand out among the rest of my Summer reading! I'm recommending Been in Love Before to all of my friends!
