Is it something I am not doing for you?" (so get the audiobook for your significant other because he will be turned on by the voice of Becca Battoe, therefore he can learn what it is about Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James that attracts you)
ELLEN: Ohhhhh...
RYAN: Is that why you're reading this? Am I..Am I not stepping up to the plate enough for you, and that's why you're reading this book, "Fifty Shades of Grey"?

RYAN: This is really for you..
LAURA: Yeah, I love it. Like I couldn't put it down, it's so good and it's not even about the whole sex thing. It's just a really good love story..I think.

ELLEN: What are the colors?
RYAN: It's Fifty Shades of Grey.(Laughing)
LAURA: Yeah, you have to read it Ellen..
RYAN: Laura ,Do you read ,with kids? LAURA: I do, I have two kids, and I read it on the digital ipod because first of all, I'm embarrassed to go anywhere and have the hard version with me so people see me reading it but also my kids will sit down next to me while I'm reading it and "oh what are you reading? what is it about.?
ELLEN: But did you hear Ryan, he left it on, on the, in his car, when the valet took his car..
LAURA: Yeah, It's fully embarrassing. My son was in the car this morning when you first start talking about it and he like started to question , hold on.. what's it about? I was on my way to drop him off
RYAN: What do you tell them when they say mom what are you reading?
LAURA: I just tell it's a love story, I say its about a boy and girl and they are falling in love.(laughing)
RYAN: I appreciate you listening to us Laura, it is a love story.
